Do we have a policy on cross-repo makedepends? i.e. using makedepends
in [extra] for packages in [core].
I ask because I want to bring dejagnu to [extra] so I can do "make
check" for gcc/binutils/etc in their PKGBUILD. (I currently do it
myself using a local dejagnu package).
I would just go ahead do it, but our integrity check script list
makedepends repo hierarchy amongst the list of issues.
I think it's fine to have core packages depending on some of the extra
repo at build time.
We do have core packages with extra or community make/optdepends.
OK. Should we remove that check from our Integrity Check script? At
least [core] packages make/optdepends on [extra]. I am not so sure
