Subject: [gentoo-dev] [RFC] iconv and libintl virtuals
Date: Sun, 11 Dec 2005 17:04:44
1 Okay now that virtual/x11 introduced the new generation's virtuals, the
2 decision of waiting to have virtuals for iconv and libintl can be considered
3 concluded, and we might start adding them, right? :D
5 Proposed virtuals for now would be:
7 virtual/iconv: || ( sys-libs/glibc dev-libs/iconv )
8 virtual/libintl: || ( sys-libs/glibc sys-devel/gettext )
10 The deps of programs using libintl would then be
12 RDEPEND="nls? ( virtual/libintl )"
13 DEPEND="nls? ( sys-devel/gettext )"
15 for iconv instead simply add virtual/iconv to RDEPEND; note that most of the
16 packages do depend on libintl but don't on libintl, as that is pulled in
17 mostly as a dep of gettext... there are though some packages that actually
18 uses libiconv directly, such as glib and mpd iirc.
20 If this is ok, I won't ask any maintainer to add that stuff by himself (well
21 if somebody wants, I'll thank him for sure), I'll take care of updating the
22 deps as they are needed.
24 Embedded team: this would probably be a good test for NLS support on uclibc,
25 if you want, please add me (or alt) as CC if you'll ever have to file bugs of
26 NLS not being correctly disabled with --disable-nls, as I found quite a few
27 programs taking that bad.
29 Thanks to everybody who cared to read this mail.
