Re: [Evolution-hackers] Request for adding version information to libcamel soname

The Debian Evolution Maintainer Team is planning the upload of Evolution
2.6 to unstable to happen very soon. Before the upload, we'd like
feedback from Evolution developers on the biggest change we make to the
upstream release. In specific, Harish confirmed bug #321372, which is
what this is about, and also Parthasarathi probably have valuable
comments on this topic.

The first part of the change was described in the previous mail in this
thread. In addition to using version numbers to libcamel (contrast to
today's 0:0:0), we plan on moving the private libcamel provider
libraries to an install location that is version specific. The current
location is /usr/lib/evolution-data-server-1.2/camel-providers/, which
includes the API version, but not libcamel version. As far as I know, it
has already been discussed to name the e-d-s directory differently. Do
you have an update on if/when that will happen? What we will do on the
debian side is to move the contents of camel-providers to
camel-providers/8, or alternatively name it camel-providers-8 or

We highly value having the same names and versions in our releases as in
upstream. If you could give some indications on what changes will be
made upstream, and what names and versions will be used for this, we
could use that name/version scheme already and avoid future conflicts.

Our release will not be delayed indefinitely, but we'll put effort into
avoiding a diversion from upstream directions. Therefore a quick answer
will be greatly appreciated.
