The new and enforced "-shared" suffixes for the druntime and
phobos shared libraries are a bit annoying (especially since
this is a breaking change), but at least at Debian we'll
follow upstream's defaults on that (it gives weird package
names, but aside from that cosmetic issue the breakage caused
by that change should be minimal).
Thank you for working on LDC! :-)
Thank you for maintaining the Debian/Ubuntu packages.
If you don't want the "-shared" suffix (and still only provide
shared libs, no static ones), then getting rid of it should be
as easy as patching
Unfortunately, we ship both - while Debian packages only use the
shared libraries, and we want the shared libraries to be default,
we also want to make the static ones available for people who
want to opt into that for software they build.
The only important thing is that `-link-defaultlib-shared`
switch works (and that you error out for
`-link-defaultlib-shared=false` if you don't ship with static
I wonder if we could suffix the static libraries instead and
whether that would cause any problems...
