Package: expect-dev
Version: 5.43.0-17
Severity: normal

I heavily use some of the scripts that come with expect, i.e. unbuffer
and kibitz.  Installed from source on other OSs (i.e. Solaris), these
scripts get installed to a normal bin dir by default.  Under Debian,
older versions installed to some doc location, and newer versions
install to a bin directory but with the name prefixed with "expect_".
Both behaviors cause problems, especially for other scripts that call
unbuffer.  If I had to pick, I'd prefer the older behavior -- at least
I could set $PATH to encompass both the expect doc dir and the normal
bin dirs, and then scripts could find unbuffer wherever it is.  The
"expect_" prefix requires an additional level of detection to figure
out the appropriate script name on this system.  Even better would be
to install the scripts with the normal name to /usr/bin,
i.e. /usr/bin/unbuffer.

This is somewhat similar to the spirit of bug 495605, but I didn't
think that bug goes far enough.

 expect ( unstable; urgency=low
   * New maintainer Sergei Golovan <sgolovan@debian.org> (closes: #543839).
   * New upstream CVS snapshot.
   * Switched to upstream which maintains CVN at SourceForge.net because
     Don Libet doesn't have time to develop Expect anymore. Therefore, changed
     upstream homepage.
   * Switched to Tcl/Tk 8.5 (closes: #512150).
   * Don't call configure and build targets twice anymore (closes: #441114).
   * Upstream includes patch which fixes empty writes (closes: #421187).
   * The new upstream fixed a regression which didn't allow to read from stdin
     (closes: #347259).
   * Added README.source with a link to /usr/share/doc/quilt/README.source
     where an instruction on how to patch upstream sources is located.
   * Removed examples from /usr/share/doc/expect-dev/examples because all of
     them are shipped in /usr/bin directory. This makes uncompressing them
     unnecessary (closes: #495605).
   * Added links all expect_* script to their original names, except mkpasswd,
     rftp and weather to avoid conflicts with other packages
     (closes: #508320, #532332).
   * Upstream removed useless "puts hello" from multixterm script
     (closes: #550909).
