Package: r-cran-dqrng
Version: 0.2.1+dfsg-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

it is nice to see my dqrng packaged for Debian. However, I find the relationship
to libpcg-cpp-dev and r-cran-sitmo surprising. Currently libpcg-cpp-dev is a
build and run-time dependency while r-cran-sitmo is only a build dependency. The
actual relationship of the dqrng code to these packages is quite similar, though.
Both packages have to be present at build time, and both backages are necessary
for certain use cases (using the C++ header only library to build your own code).
So from my point of view it would make sense to have libpcg-cpp-dev and
r-cran-sitmo as build dependnecy and as run-time recommend or suggest.

I am not sure which functionality of dqrng is used by r-cran-uwot. It might be
that r-cran-uwot will need a build dependency on libpcg-cpp-dev, too.
