We don't have to try *all* possible combinations, but only those differing in interfaces (eg. if some libfoo changes its exported interface on a userflag, the clients have to be built against that two versions). It involves some interface analysis and a bit of graph theory. Should be possible to do it incrementally. cu -- --------------------------------------------------------------------- Enrico Weigelt == metux IT service - http://www.metux.de/ --------------------------------------------------------------------- Please visit the OpenSource QM Taskforce: http://wiki.metux.de/public/OpenSource_QM_Taskforce Patches / Fixes for a lot dozens of packages in dozens of versions: http://patches.metux.de/ ---------------------------------------------------------------------
