Re: Semi-contrib packages

Right, thanks for pointing this out (I need to RTFP :-). So the source
would become contrib, because some of the binaries would need contrib
software to build on one platform. But then, can I put the
gcc/g77-built binaries in main? Hmm, doubtful.

Can I "Build-Depends: ccc [alpha], cfal [alpha]" and still have the
source package in main?
No, that would violate policy (2.1.2).
I guess the proper way to do this would be to assemble a separate
contrib "petsc-dec" source package. But then, the additional
petsc_2.1.0.orig.tar.gz would take another ~7 megs on the mirrors!
So maybe this wasn't such a good idea after all. I'll just leave it
as-is, with instructions for building the faster version with ccc/cfal.
