old versions: svgalib-bin?
I'm currently working on svgalib (mostly for libc6).
As it stands now, I would like to make the following name-changes:
svgalib1 -> svgalib1g (libc6 protocol)
svgalib1-dev -> svgalib1g-dev (libc6 protocol)
svgalib1-bin -> svgalib-bin (there's no reason to put the soname in
a package that uses svgalib1g, I'd say).
aout-svgalib -> - (obvious)
So, for the libraries at least I will not need the epoch's any more,
as I'm changing the name of the package.
The thing that worries me is svgalib-bin: there may be (very old) versions
of a package called "svgalib-bin" around, with a version like 1.210, though
it seems that very far in the past the whole lot was just called
"svgalib", with no package-subdivisions. So, I'd like to know:
- has there ever been a "svgalib-bin" package?
- if so, was this just a brief period in "unstable", or am
I likely to encounter users who upgrade from say 1.1 that still
have a "svgalib-bin" package.
- what's the version of that "svgalib-bin" package (if it exist)?
higer than 1.2.10 -- (like 1.210), or am I lucky and was it
still 0.99 or something?
If nobody responds, I'll assume the distribution of "svgalib-bin"
packages isn't very widespread, and I can just use that name.
(Oh, and remind me to also upgrade the upstream source, somebody
once reported that there was a security bug in 1.2.10, but the guy never
actually bothered to say what the bug was, so I'm not very inclined
to trust him).
 other than something as vague as "fails to surrender priveleges".
