I'm confused. You make a change for puredata >= 0.43. Does this
puredata <0.43? The Depends field suggests that (puredata-core
existent until 0.43). If so, the build-depends on puredata <<
puredata << 0.43 provides everything, headers, app, gui, doc,
0.43, the headers are in puredata-dev and puredata is a meta
that installs everything. I wanted to avoid having the package
Build-Depend on the whole suite of packages, that's why I added the
0.43. Plus in the future, puredata might no longer also install
Also, doesn't 0.43 bring in the required headers? I think the
add_required_headers patch can be removed.
Yes, the puredata-dev 0.43 package does provide those headers,
wanted to leave in the patch for now to aid backporting and let
settle on the big changes that happened with the puredata package
split into puredata-gui, puredata-dev, puredata-core, etc.
The package won't work unmodified anyways, since it Depends on
puredata-core, which doesn't exist until 0.43. So strictly speaking
the aid for backporting is incomplete (also, it installs into a
different dir, so that would need to be changed too).
I suggest just dropping the << 0.43 option, since it misleads into
thinking it could actually work unchanged with 0.42.
Please update the changelog. I have reviewed this and will upload
tomorrow afternoon (GMT-4, so probably past midnight in europe).
Ok, makes sense, I removed the << 0.43 and pushed.
Offering puredata as an option is wrong too (it still allows 0.42)
Yes, good point. I also now realized that a backport would also mean
changing the installed folder, since the puredata 0.43 package suite
installs into /usr/lib/puredata now, while puredata 0.42 installed
