Libraries with ABI changes
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Dear list readers,
I got some questions to library packaging. If the ABI of a library
breaks, the SONAME of it gets updated and thus the binary package's
name. As soon as the new revision gets uploaded the old binary package
should get NBS (Not Built From Source) status assigned by rene and the
ftp-masters would notice it after NEW processing.
But would such a package kept so long in the archive until all packages
which depend on the old library have been rebuilt? And will the removal
of the old version then happen semi-automatically (as in listed in the
normal rene output)?
