Alastair reacted quite fast. He recently uploaded version 2.0.4-6 of
libslang2 and slsh, which have the module path correctly set and contains
all the *-module.so provided in the upstream sources.
I already prepared a Debian package for slgdbm, which can be found at:
Before filing an ITP against wnpp, I would like to ask some things
(hopefully Paul is following this thread):
1. The HTML documentation says that the current version is 1.3, but in
gdbm.c I see "$Id: gdbm.c,v 1.5". Which one is correct.
2. Compilation of gdbm.c shows a lot of warnings (probably due to the use of
-Wall). Shouldn't the problems be fixed?
3. I am using the description below:
Description: access to gdbm databases from S-Lang
This package contains a S-Lang module which provides access to gdbm
databases. The user interface has an assoc-like syntax and this
module can be used either in slh (the S-Lang shell) or from the JED
Paul, could you please suggest a better description?
At any rate, I created this package quite quickly, in my first attempt to
use cdbs. I am really impressed by the minimalist approach of cdbs:
besides the debian/changelog and the debian/control files, I wrote just
four lines of code (two in debian/rules and one in each
debian/slgdbm.docs and slgdbm.install) and voilà! the packaging is done.
