Build-time dependencies - please review the proposal
[ Follow-ups to -policy. ]
I have proposed on -policy a build-time dependency mechanism. If you're
interested in this matter, please join the discussion on -policy.
I'm especially interested in input from maintainers of complex packages,
such as X, GNU Libc and others, and from porters.
The text of the proposal is available at
<URL:http://master.debian.org/~ajk/proposal.txt>, and the proposal is
tracked by bug #41232.
[Ob-Devel-Announce: If the proposal is accepted, it will affect most Debian
packages, so it is only fair to let all maintainers know of that
