Subject: libcdk5-dev missing the file cdk_test.h
Date: Thu, 25 Sep 2008 10:06:59 -0700
Package: libcdk5-dev
Version: 5.0.20060507-1

I just starting playing around with the Curses Development Kit and
noticed that the file cdk_test.h is missing from the deb file. I checked
the source Debian file and the file does exist in it. I found this
because I was unable to build the example files included. When I
installed this file the example I was playing with built correctly.

Would appreciate it if you could add this file to the package

I am using Lenny with the packages updated as of September 24, 2008.

A couple of years have gone by on this bug, and I just ran into it. Any
chance of fix?

Of interest perhaps (to reduce the amount of work involved) is patch to
the package generated by Ubuntu:
