Since Tracker has a DBus interface that applications can connect to without having to link to libmetatracker, I don't think its completely necessary (correct me if I'm wrong, though :-)Perhaps another name could be found... It's just a way to not distribute to simple users files like tracker.h and tracker-client.h that are not useful for them. Distributions will do something like that. Something like libmetatracker-dev is better? But so it should be strange to not have a libmetatracker package...Maybe 'tracker-tools' for tracker-search, tracker-query, etc., 'libmetatracker' for the libs so that packages like Nautilus can depend just on that, and then 'libmetatracker-dev' for the headers?I also thought about that but if I do a tracker package that only contains trackerd and filters, trackerd won't be usable without tracker-tools or Nautilus. Since tracker is targeted to be desktop neutral, any user should be able to use tracker without any effort. Is tracker-tools installation an "effort"? To compare, beagle package is shipped with beagle-query (= tracker-search not tracker-query). tracker-files, tracker-meta-folder, tracker-query, tracker-search, tracker-stats and tracker-tag depend on libmetatracker, so tracker-tools will have to depend on libmetatracker. So, it begins to be complicated and we have: * tracker, depends: . * libmetatracker, depends: tracker. * libmetatracker-dev, depends: libmetatracker. * tracker-tools, depends: libmetatracker. Is it correct? Jamie, what do you think about that?I suppose the deb should really be called meta-tracker with a corresponding dev package. I dont think we need to split it out further.
Finally I did something close to what Samuel suggested. I made 4 packages: * meta-tracker (recommends meta-tracker-utils), * libmetatracker0 (depends on meta-tracker), * libmetatracker0-dev (depends on libmetatracker0), * meta-tracker-utils (depends on libmetatracker0). It is useful to have libmetatracker0 to reflect soname changes and to comply with Debian practices.

A detailled output prints: " This package contains a changelog.Debian.gz, but not a changelog.gz. It is fine for both to exist, but changelog.gz should also exist." which is wrong, meta-tracker contains a changelog.gz file... A linda bug?!
Thanks for working on this as Im not very knowledgeable about Debs
I'm not an expert too! But I think that these packages are rather good. Laurent.
