Opinions: Fortify to include files for Solaris etc.
Hi. Please see bug #21271, and give me your opinion
in private Email - I'll summarize if necessary.
Fortify is a program that binary-patches Netscape
to support strong cryptography. It can patch Linux/i386
Netscapes, but also Solaris Netscapes and many others..
Should the Debian version of fortify exclude the datafiles
for these other platforms?
-disk space saved (~ 1.3MB)
(but note that Fortify really is an install-use-purge -type
of a package, so the data files are not necessary and the
whole package can be purged at will)
-you can no longer patch your Solaris/whatever Netscape with it
-harder maintenance, further away from upstream
-should we then include a package fortify-extra with the rest
of the datafiles, and make fortify suggest it? Bloaty.
..just wanted to hear your opinions before releasing the
new upstream version..
