Re: [GSoC] tasks_diff hints (compare task files between Blend releases)

Hello Andreas,

I think this is more or less the data we need to include into

in inventing names and this one seems to be perfectly OK.


Probably yes because this will finally be the user visible name.  Please
note that you can get this via

   /usr/share/blends-dev/blend-get-names metapackageprefix

I do not say that blend-get-names is something we should keep for ever
in this form but we need some names in various places and some common
interface to obtain these makes sense.

Ok, I will also use the same to obtain the blendname for blend-gen-control
For the moment I do not have any hints for enhancing tasks_diff.

BTW, yesterday I have seen in some control file:

   Build-Depends: pkg1 [!arch1 !arch2 !arch3], pkg2 [!arch1], ...

This might be an idea for an alternative way to create a single control
file (after having checked the relevant docs which I did not - may be
this is only valid for Build-Depends which I doubt but checking might
not harm).

Ok I will check that

Kind regards
