Target version:rci0.5


I know this is an hassle, but it gives me lot of maintainance nightmare at higher levels because the debian policy is not strongly followed in the debian packaging of librci.

Please fix the following issues :

  • have a runtime and a dev package.
  • Make sure runtime package have the same full name than the library (with SONAME). Currently it should be librci0.9
  • No header in the runtime package, but in the dev package
  • No librsc.so in the runtime, but in the dev package a symlink to librci.so.0.4
  • provide a shlibs file for better debian integration. (see section 8.6). Basically it will be used by dpkg to maintain its database of symbols / shared lib dependency

This come from the debian manual policy, and could causes problem, especially when using pkg-config to symlink with rci (which is the case for liboncilla compilation from webots).

Please refer to http://www.debian.org/doc/debian-policy/ch-sharedlibs.html
