Subject: [gentoo-dev] sqlite/sqlite3 useflag inconsistency
Date: Wed, 09 Jan 2008 21:33:16
1 Hi out there,
3 as I was told on bugzilla, I am taking this here.
5 I do not know if this was proposed earlier, but I noticed, that
6 USE="sqlite" seems to just pull in any dev-db/sqlite, which in many
7 cases does not really mean any, like
8 DEPEND="sqlite? dev-db/sqlite"
9 would do, but something like
10 DEPEND="sqlite? ( >=dev-db/sqlite-3 )" ## from app-portage/eix/eix-0.10.3.ebuild
12 While sqlite3 pulls in dev-db/sqlite-3* (At least it should, I have
13 not really checked that one)
15 In my humble opinion it would be nice to have a greater degree of
16 control by separating this into two useflags, sqlite2 and sqlite3,
17 just like e.g. qt3 and qt4
19 Regards,
20 Benedikt
