Good morning mentors, I’m in the process of packaging a GObject–based library which provides gobject-introspection support. While preparing the gir1.2- package I stumbled upon the gobject-introspection mini–policy and found out that .typelib files are supposed to be installed in the /usr/lib/girepository-1.0 directory, which doesn’t take multiarch into account. Seeing as the .typelib files are binary blobs, that sounded odd. I checked gir1.2-gtk-3.0 for amd64, mipsel and armhf, obtaining this: $ md5sum Gtk-3.0.* de536efa2a280bd6e41bdc31c6141106 Gtk-3.0.amd64.typelib 4d35a70e54348924ddfeabf25528089d Gtk-3.0.armhf.typelib 4d35a70e54348924ddfeabf25528089d Gtk-3.0.mipsel.typelib The question is: why aren’t these files installed in a multiarch–aware path? In a very old thread about gobject-introspection on -devel, Josselin Mouette argues that adjusting paths for multiarch is not needed, but given that we’re going through all the trouble of isolating arch–specific bits I don’s see why not go the extra mile. Does somebody have any suggestion, or perhaps a good rationale for the current state of affairs?
