[Fwd: Bug#387557: pcre3: Please ship pcre_internal.h]
What do people think about this?
Personally I feel that the "internal" in the name really should have
been a big enough clue, and I don't want to include a file that's not
meant to be used just because some idiots have written software that
I'm not even sure it will work; what is it that emboss wants it for?

I am building packages for EMBOSS, the European Molecular Biology
Software Suite (www.emboss.org). They ship an old version of pcre, and
build against it. As a result, the package contains files wich conflict
with Debian's pcre3.
I am trying to solve this by building EMBOSS against Debian's pcre
packages, but EMBOSS uses pcre_internal.h, which is not shipped. Do you
think that you could add them to your packages?
Ahemm... and as I am trying to finish the packaging before the freeze,
do you think that you could add the pcre_internal.h to pcre3 before the
freeze too? Do you need me to submit a patch?
Thanks a lot, and have a nice day,
Debian-Med packaging team
