Manpage of milhouse says "There is also a shared video library". If we expect this to be ever used, we should not ship the header files together with the binary (in scenic-utils) but instead provide libscenic (or is that the proper name? that's the folder - there seem to be no central library in it) and libscenic-dev packages.


I think it would like to see this bug closed:
http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=584164
It's been three (3) months that we're working on this, and no package has been done.

I think the shared libraries in this package are not mature enough to be public. Therefore, it should not be packaged separately. That means that scenic is ready to be uploaded to Debian unstable.

Jonas, please list whatever needs to be done for this package to be uploaded.

I am not sure how to properly package non-public shared libraries.

Please someone advice on this.

really depends on how the package uses them. In general, putting them
into /usr/lib/$package/ should do it, but it really depends on how the
package uses them. are they used as plugins like in xine, vlc? or are
they convenience shared libraries, like e.g. in openoffice?

where do  upstream's installation scripts install them?

As quoted above, it is normal shared libraries which upstream simply consider immature for public use.

Personally I suspect that as such we really should treat them as normal public shared libraries anyway for Debian packaging (as I suspect we might run into similar packaging upgrade problems no matter how stable upstram consider the files), but I might be unaware of other acceptable approaches.

Upstream install the files below /usr/lib/scenic/
