Bug #47039: renaming slang.
I've been reviewing bugs in slang, and closing those that are fixed, and
This requires/recommends that the package names be changed to policy
slang1 -> libslang1
slang1-dev -> libslang1-dev
slang1-pic -> libslang1-pic
slang1-utf8-dev - > libslang1-utf8-dev
slang1a-utf8 -> libslang1-utf8
slang1-utf8-pic -> libslang1-utf8-pic
slang1-utf8-dev -> libslang1-utf8-dev
slang1a-utf8-udeb -> libslang1-utf8-udeb
Doing this is straightforward, but will require
work by others: the following packages
(other than slang & newt, which I maintain), require changes as a result,
according to apt-cache:
(change Build-Depends, Depends and recompile):
finally, build-essential would need changing, as
it lists slang, and it its change would need to be
timed with libslang entering testing.
This may be too drastic a change at this time.
What do debian-devel, and particular the
Release Manage, think?
