Archers, In the effort to clean up the daisy-chain of $pkgname, $depends, and $provides as I go through the build scripts for the git tree, here is my first thoughts on a name cleanup. I'm not tied to any of the names and the goal is simply to make the dependency tree as clean as possible without K_this and T_that intermixed. The $depends simply lists the git tree depends and does not list the other required depends for building (those are what they are), but I want to remove depends that don't belong or are unnecessary (referencing a previous trinity package implicitly includes all the prior depends - so duplication is unnecessary) Look it over. I've only done it for the packages I have built so far (avahi-tqt still won't build). Obviously some people won't build the 'davs' or avahi-tqt, so I've set the $depends accordingly. # GITsource $pkgname $provides $depends qt3 tde-qt3 'qt3' tqtinterface tde-tqtinterface 'tqtinterface' 'qt3' arts tde-arts 'arts' 'tqtinterface' dbus-tqt tde-dbus-tqt 'dbus-tqt' 'arts' dbus-1-tqt tde-dbus-1-tqt 'dbus-1-tqt' 'dbus-tqt' libcaldav tde-libcaldav 'libcaldav' 'dbus-1-tqt' libcarddav tde-libcarddav 'libcarddav' 'dbus-1-tqt' libart-lpgl tde-libart-lpgl 'libart-lpgl' 'dbus-1-tqt' avahi-tqt tde-avahi-tqt 'avahi-tqt' 'dbus-1-tqt' tdelibs tde-tdelibs 'tdelibs' 'libart-lpgl' tdebase tde-tdebase 'tdebase' 'tdelibs' The $pkgname is just a stab. I actually will probably want something like: $pkgname tde-dep-qt3 tde-dep-tqtinterface tde-dep-arts tde-dep-dbus-tqt tde-dep-dbus-1-tqt tde-dep-libcaldav tde-dep-libcarddav tde-dep-libart-lpgl tde-dep-avahi-tqt tde-tdelibs tde-tdebase ... tde-app-kpilot ... That way dependencies, applications, etc... all sort together and the tde-xyz is shorter than including 'dependencies' or 'applications' in the file name. Just my thoughts... -- David C.
