AF> Hello,
AF> FreeType 2.0 has been uploaded to Incoming for Debian woody, hence my
AF> post-upload Intent-to-Package.  :-)

    Nice. I need it to upload the Nautilus package.


AF> FreeType 2.0 can co-exist peacefully with FreeType 1.3.1 with no namespace
AF> conflicts.  However, the source package names must be distinguished in
AF> Debian.  So, to make things _really_ confusing, I've decided the following
AF> names for the FreeType packages in Debian woody:

AF>   FreeType 2.0:
AF>       Source package: freetype_2.0.orig.tar.gz        (current version)
AF>      library package: freetype6_2.0-?           (libfreetype, soname 6)
AF>        devel package: freetype6-dev_2.0-?       (libfreetype, soname 6)

    why not libfreetype6 and libfreetype6-dev(or libfreetype-dev) ?

AF>   FreeType 1.3.1:
AF>       Source package: freetype1_1.3.1.orig.tar.gz      (for FreeType 1)
AF>      library package: freetype2_1.3.1-?              (libttf, soname 2)
AF>        devel package: freetype2-dev_1.3.1-?          (libttf, soname 2)

    also, libttf2 ... ?

Takuo Kitame.
