Package: libgdal1-1.3.1-dev
Version: 1.3.1-0.dgis.stable.2
Severity: normal


In the 1.2.6 package "/usr/bin/gdal-config" (needed for GRASS compile) 
was provided in the gdal-bin package. With the current 1.3.1 packages
(I'm using the DebianGIS backport for Stable) it has moved to the
libgdal1-1.3.1-dev package. I thought the whole point of having a
gdal-config program was to let you know what the gdal compile 
settings were without having to have a full -dev setup in place.
Now I have to have 8 new dependant -dev packages installed just to 
know what went into the libgdal compile. :(

Can it be / should it be  moved back to the gdal-bin package?

severity 364981 wishlist

As you can see in other packages (e.g. mysql, postgresql, gtk+, ...) the
config scripts always belong to the respective -dev packages. Also
consider that many information about the package can be found in
alternative ways (see --formats) or by policy.
So I'm closing this bug, because respecting common practices is much more
important than space wasted.
