Subject: buildd.emdebian.org: libgpewidget needs DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS="nodocs" support in debhelper
Date: Sat, 10 May 2008 16:39:20 +0100
Package: general
Severity: normal

libgpewidget includes documentation files required by Debian Policy and
is unable to remove these using the DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS="nodocs" option
due to a lack of support for this option in debhelper.

Documentation needs to be removed when preparing Emdebian packages in
order to comply with Emdebian Policy.
http://wiki.debian.org/EmdebianPolicy

Currently, this means that libgpewidget needs to be crossbuilt with a
patch for debian/rules.

This bug is being filed in preparation for a pseudo-package,
buildd.emdebian.org, where these issues can be set out and fixed.

The intention is to provide simple support for Emdebian packages without
needing patches by filing appropriate bug reports against the packages
themselves and against packages that block such actions as well as
tracking bugs filed against buildd.emdebian.org so that the overall
status of the Emdebian builds is visible to anyone, not just the person
doing the builds (me).

This is not a bug in libgpewidget because libgpewidget is doing what is
required by Debian Policy - it is a bug in buildd.emdebian.org because
Emdebian needs to be able to build as many packages as possible without
any patches and this requirement is blocked by #448615.

i.e. Where the need for a patch can be removed by fixing a package
already in Debian, the bug is in buildd.emdebian.org until the bug in
the relevant package is closed (in this case, debhelper).
