dpkg wishlist for debmake functionality
I heard a rumour that Ian is working again on dpkg. There are quite a
number of things in the debmake package that would be better off if dpkg
would do them:
Invoked with no parameters dpkg-shlibdeps could search for
binaries in debian/tmp in the same way debstd does so that
the maintainers do not have to specify the binaries. All binaries
would be scanned when invoked with no parameters so that the
package will include proper dependencies for to satisfy any shared
library used by any binary.
Maybe dpkg-shlibdeps could go beyond debstd and also scan for
scripts and insure that dependencies for the interpreters of
those scripts are generated.
dpkg-shlibdeps could also include the functionality to
properly strip binaries and libraries.
It could also generate the proper DEBIAN/shlibs file if the
debian/tmp directory is found to provide sharable libraries.
1. Generate a DEBIAN/md5sums file with all the md5sums
of files in debian/tmp so that the integrity of all installed
files can be verified.
2. Make sure manpages are compressed and insure
link integrity of symlinks in manpage directories.
dpkg Provide a similar functionality to suidmanager. Register all
suidbinaries automatically in /etc/suid.conf and allow the
sysadmin to specify overrides in /etc/suid.conf. Allow special
permissions to be set on any file or directory which is kept
