Packaging WM themes - question
Hi. I'm about to submit an ITP for a set of KDE window decoration and widget
themes and I'm trying to decide upon the best way to package them. They're
all from the same author (part of a single large release with the same
version number) and there's about 39 themes in total.
Options are (1) release one huge-arse binary package; (2) release 39
packages, one for each theme; (3) release a moderate number of packages each
containing a few themes.
I am hesitant to do (1) because of the user's disk space usage. I am
hesitant to do (2) because I'm not sure that debian wants a million
kde-theme-* packages on its servers.
It seems GTK and enlightenment themes are currently using method (2) but
there's not nearly so many themes on the servers.
Thus I lean towards (3) but I'd really like people's input.
