Move libgnome Python bindings to gnome-python2-gnome?
The OLPC guys are asking me to split the Python bindings for libgnome
and libgnomeui into a new subpackage of gnome-python2 called
gnome-python2-gnome (see ). The rationale being that libgnome drags
in extra dependencies that some of the other gnome-python2 subpackages
don't need. For example, gnome-python2-gnomevfs doesn't need libgnome
but still requires its parent package, gnome-python2.
This sounds like a reasonable idea to me but it will break other
packages that require gnome-python2 expecting to get the libgnome[ui]
bindings. Those packages would have to require gnome-python2-gnome
