Hello, context: debian/shlibs.local can be used to work around broken shlibs files (Policy §8.6.5). Bugs are supposed to be filed, then fixed, and shlibs.local files should then disappear. I'm wondering whether it might be a good idea to track those in source packages, so as to make sure bugs got filed, and that those files go away. Having a fixed shlibs file would be profitable to all packages linking against this library, rather than having a single package getting its dependencies properly, through its shlibs.local file. Do you think it'd be worse the effort? (Didn't check the amount of such files yet, still performing my first AM steps.) Mraw, KiBi.
