Yes, this is unfortunate. Also, it would not be a good idea to have
libsigc++ in core and gtkmm in extras. I think you really want the same
person to be maintaining those, and they need to be upgraded at the same
Was there a specific reason to add it to core ?
-denis, sigC++/gtkmm extras maintainer
Adding to that, the package currently conflicts with libsigc++20 from
Extras since it upgrades the older one for the older API, which we've kept
It is based on an old package from Red Hat Linux, which has flaws. It owns
/usr/share/doc, contains libsigc-2.0.so in the wrong package, contains
duplicates of the %doc files from the main package in the -devel package,
should require pkgconfig in the -devel package, and moves the html docs to
a different directory.
A copy of the GPL ought to be included also in the Extras package, btw.
