I don't think "Transitive-Build-Depends" is a good name here, first, because I think 97% of the people will have no idea what it means. And second, because I think it's wrong, as the field would only list the installed build depends, but not all transitive ones. (Or maybe my second point is moot, but then I fall under the 97% too, which would strengthen my first point ;) Build-packages-installed: ? cheers, Holger
