Subject: dpkg-dev: dpkg-shlibdeps : allow pr package overrides for unresolved symbols
Date: Sun, 19 Oct 2008 16:10:47 +0200
Package: dpkg-dev
Version: 1.14.22
Severity: normal


I would like to be able to tell dpkg-dev to not warn me about specific
symbols in specific binaries not being found. Like:

dpkg-shlibdeps: warning: symbol PyList_New used by
debian/python-kde4/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/PyKDE4/kutils.so
found in none of the libraries.
dpkg-shlibdeps: warning: symbol PyModule_GetDict used by
debian/python-kde4/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/PyKDE4/kutils.so
found in none of the libraries.
dpkg-shlibdeps: warning: symbol PyGILState_Release used by
debian/python-kde4/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/PyKDE4/kutils.so
found in none of the libraries.
dpkg-shlibdeps: warning: 10 other similar warnings have been skipped
(use -v to see them all).

 - this is actually expected and on purpose, but symbols not being the
Py ones (if any) is not expected and something I would like to deal
with, so a mechanism for overriding these warnings wolud be nice.

Does that mean that you know of the --warnings option but that it doesn't
suit you because you want something where you can give a list of symbols
to ignore for each kind of warning ?

Yes. In the pasted case, the Py* symbols is expected to be not found, so I 
don't need to be told about those symbols, but I would like a warning if there 
suddenly is a not found _ZeqRK13QLatin1StringRK10QStringRef-symbol or 
something like that.
