Description Rex Dieter 2005-06-30 13:58:32 UTC
IMO, the extra complexity (packaging, and for end-user experience) of packaging
the -arts and -akode output plugins separately is not worth it.

I can *maybe* understand -akode, since it adds a dependancy on kdemultimedia,
but arts will always be installed, so I don't understand any benefit to
packaging it separately (unless you're using that as a way to discourage its use
in favor of -gstreamer).

No biggie, but at least consider it.

Comment 1 Tom Chiverton 2005-06-30 14:57:27 UTC
I agree, it's a total pain, and confusing to boot.

Comment 2 Aurelien Bompard 2005-07-01 12:42:33 UTC
Yeah, I guess it just makes it harder for the end user. I was following the
guidelines at
In the next version, I'll keep only -akode (and -xine of course).

Comment 3 Rex Dieter 2005-07-01 13:23:16 UTC
You probably ought to keep -visualization as well.   I can see some folks not
wanting xmms (and gtk+) to get pulled in.

Comment 4 Aurelien Bompard 2005-07-01 13:52:16 UTC
Yes, that's what I actually did in CVS. -arts was the only deleted supackage in
then end.
