I'm not sure I understand the question. I think you are asking about general-purpose, third-party-maintained development tools. If so: yes, the recommendation is that third-party-maintained software should not be bundled, but instead packaged for general use in a separate Debian package. That's what the document at the above URL is discussing; it includes a link to the relevant Debian Policy section. If you mean something different, can you clarify? -- \ “Skepticism is the highest duty and blind faith the one | `\ unpardonable sin.” —Thomas Henry Huxley, _Essays on | _o__) Controversial Questions_, 1889 | Ben Finney
