After the change to add sonames to the private libraries,
dpkg-shlibdeps now generates proper dependencies for all shared
libraries. The consequence of this is that we now have circular
dependencies between most of the packages.
This is a mess that is (almost?) impossible to untangle. And with this
amount of circular dependencies, it is pretty much pointless to have
separate binary packages anyway - you'll always end up installing all
So I'd like to suggest sticking all libraries in a single package for
the time being. That package will be large, but not huge. It is also
no worse than what we do at the moment, and it allows us to move
If there is a need to split a particular library out into a separate
package, because there is something else that needs just that library,
we can still move it outside of samba-libs when we want to.
Thoughts? Peanuts? Rotten tomatoes?
