Bug#211622: propose new virtual package: libxaw-dev
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
I am prospective DD; as one of my opening packages, I intend to adopt the
sound file editor xwave. One of the bugs against it, 170005, says that
depending on the virtual package "libxaw-dev" is wrong.
However, reading the debian policy manual sections 3.6 and 7.4, it seems to
me to be a perfectly reasonable thing to do. The real packages libxaw6-dev
and libxaw7-dev exist, and are listed as Providing libxaw-dev. The only
other thing that the policy manuals suggest is that virtual packages be
mentioned in the virtual-packages-name-list.txt.
So I propose that "libxaw-dev" be added to that list.
