Re: Essential binaries and Pre-Depends on libraries

* Ansgar Burchardt <ansgar@debian.org>, 2014-07-04, 13:26:
essential binaries have to work also when the package is in an unpacked, but not configured, state. For that reason, packages including essential binaries use Pre-Depends on the shared libraries needed by those binaries.

However, from my reading of policy I get the impression that this still leaves an open issue: the transitive dependencies.

See bug #593177.
