Re: 请问xcin的词音不见了

I was going to email you about the changes I'm going to make regarding
libtabe's packages ... but you beat me :p

Do you want me to compile with libdb3 or libdb2?  It compiles fine here
with libdb2, but I do prefer libdb3.

A somewhat related question: are the databases created with libdb2
compatible with libdb3?  Vice versa?  I suspect they're not, but if they
are, then libtabe-db 0.2.4a doesn't need to Conflicts: libtabe0.

That's great!

The tarball I got was straight from 
I hope it's not too old ... I do notice that CVS HEAD has a few changes.

Now on to the packaging changes I mentioned before.  As you know,
libtabe changed its API from 0.2.3 to 0.2.4; however, it did so without
bumping its soname.[1]  The result is that, with xcin installed,
I could still install libtabe0-dev 0.2.4a-1, and everything became a
mess.  xcin won't even compile (because /usr/include/tabe.h has
the new API).

Therefore, from 0.2.4, I propose making the following changes:

 * The binary package would be called "libtabe0.2.4".
 * The development package would be called "libtabe-dev".
 * The tsiyin database package is still called "libtabe-db".

libtabe-dev would contain the newest libtabe API.

libtabe0.2.4 and libtabe0 (0.2.3-6) can coexist together on the system,
so that eg. xcin does not need to be removed to install the
latest libtabe-dev.

The changes would make the packages similar to libgal.

The above work is mostly finished; the preliminary packages can be found
on http://spacehunt.info/  (sorry, not apt-gettable yet.)

What do you think?

[1] Well, the soname did change, but its major-version didn't.  In fact,
    the whole name of the library changed from "libtabe-0.2.2" to
    "libtabe-0.2.4"; the libraries are thus called "libtabe-0.2.2.so.0"
    and "libtabe-0.2.4.so.0".
