Bug#304854: xbase-clients: please add xgl-clients package

Package: xbase-clients
Version: 4.3.0.dfsg.1-12.0.1
Severity: wishlist

[ Let's try again. Guess I should learn how to use reportbug. ]


I tried removing all gl related packages on a system which had no hardware
supporting it anyway and with a dire need for harddisk space, but couldn't
because xbase-clients contains a number of gl applications. I had to build
an empty package with equivs to satisfy the gl dependency, which is rather

Would you please split out the gl clients into their own package? (from a
cursory look, most are just test or diagnostics applications anyway)

`In a world of NDA-bound business agreements, Debian is an open book.
 In a world of mission statements, Debian has a social contract. At a time
 when commercial distributors are striving to see how much proprietary
 software they can pack into a box of Linux, Debian remains the bastion of
 software freedom--living proof that you can have a fully functional and
 usable operating system without needing any proprietary code.'
