Re: [DEP 8] About the Restrictions and Features field.

* Charles Plessy <plessy@debian.org>, 2012-06-23, 12:33:
reading DEP 8's appendix, I wonder about the necessity to keep separate Restrictions and Features fields. For instance, the no-build-needed Feature could also be a needs-build restriction.

I noticed this only today:

| autopkgtest (2.0.0) unstable; urgency=medium
|   * Incompatible test declaration spec changes:
|      - no-build-needed is now the default; build-needed is a Restriction
|        that tests which need it have to declare.

Apparently http://dep.debian.net/deps/dep8/ is not being kept up-to-date. :|
