I agree with Martin - it does not belong to -devel package - it's
completely wrong but I tend more to put it to subpackage. It's
webdevelopers tool, most users are not interested in. And as for
example Midora is user as lightweight browser on smaller devices, I'm
not sure shipping bigger package makes sense + does any WebKit
browser reflect Inspector installed in UI?
well, 2.3MB seems hardly worth a subpackage to me. ;)
In midori at least there is a 'inspect page' in the right click menu.
If you don't currently have webkitgtk-devel installed, it just does
nothing at all. (yes, it should probibly error on the inspector not
being available). Even if it did say "Inspector not available", most
people wouldn't know to look for a subpackage to enable it, IMHO.
