Main Inclusion Report for `libapt-front`

  1. Availability: Libapt-front is in universe, Arch: any

  2. Rationale: Build-dep for Adept and Debtags (static library)

  3. Security:

    • No CANs
  4. Quality assurance:

    • Very active maintainer and packager
    • No open bug reports
  5. Standards compliance:

    • The package meets the FHS.
    • Does not meet library guide:
      • no shared library, only a huge static one; this is a pain for bug fixes and security updates
      • no SONAME, thus can break API at will and render packages FTBFS
  6. Dependencies:

    • All in main


MartinPitt: I would like to see a proper library if we want this in main.
