Ok, I hope its alright with everyone, I removed the control.in.

If you mean to say that the control.in annoys you, then fine.

If, on the other hand, you mean to say that you guess noone use the .in file then you're wrong: I use it (as long as noone is annoyed by it).

For the record, I'm not saying that no one uses the file, or that the automatic Build-Depends handling isn't useful. I'm saying I think in this package, the benefits of the control.in are smaller than the disadvantages.

For the record I am perfectly fine with dropping control.in "in this package" or any other package - as long as noone uses it or it annoys someone. If, on the other hand, someone use it and it does not annoy anyone - "in this package" or any other package - then it seems odd to rip it out.

I am talking about "in this package" - and have been in all of the parts quoted above.

I gave an example (not quoted here to try avoid confusion) on how even if currently dependency resolving "in this package" is simple, it might not be in the future, which I find a valid reason to continue using that feature of CDBS "in this package" as well as other ones which you might consider so simple that you might want to rip it out from.


Let me repeat: I suggest we only drop the control.in if noone use the .in file or it annoys someone. In this package.



Kind regards - and happy new year to all,

 - Jonas
