Sorry for misunderstanding your posting -- please be patient with me as a
Hm. I am not convinced of the need for a dev package though. Whoever wants to
develop should use (anonymous) cvs. There is probably only need for a
well-written sword rpm that users could install (just the lib), or what do
Atm BibleTime rpms include a static sword in the binary. We have to supply
additional files (like locales) as well, which can conflict if users already
have a sword rpm installed. Now if a good sword rpm exists, we can probably
switch over to requiring that one and have sword dynamic. I think this would
be the cleaner and more obvious solution. Thanks for your work on it thus
far! I'd be glad if you could continue to maintain this (if wished by the
sword masters) a bit (esp. the spec file).
Btw: hopefully the cvs will be split soon, so that the apps stuff goes in
separate modules and only the lib and related stuff stays in.
