chained dependencies handling in debian/control
Let package A depend on package B and C.
Let package B depend on package C.
I maintain A, someone else maintains B and C.
Should I explicitely let A depend on B and C in debian/control, or is it
OK -- or better -- to let it depend only on B?
In the case at hand:
A = python2.1-xml
B = python2.1-xmlbase
C = python2.1
So I'm pretty certain that B's dependency on C won't be removed
Thanks in advance
