Still, a -dev package is a better option: * There might be other people willing to package gaim plugins, who could benefit from a -dev package, and who are not as actively watching gaim as you are. * There is no code duplicated in multiple packages, thus precious diskspace is saved on our mirrors (talk to a mirror admin sometime). -- Wouter Verhelst Debian GNU/Linux -- http://www.debian.org Nederlandstalige Linux-documentatie -- http://nl.linux.org "Stop breathing down my neck."
