I don't think this is relevant for our use case. I am not going to have
duplicate Debian packages in 3rd party repositories. Debian has ~25000
packages. You can create nearly any application that depends just on standard
Debian libraries. Same goes for SHR.
There should be simple rule for application developers: if you depend on
library use the library from Debian, never duplicate it.
And rule for users: if the application does not obey this rule, write negative
comment and never let the application appear on "Recommended to install" list.
And also - if you are not comfortable with adding third party repositories,
don't do it. Download the .deb, install it manually. Whatever - but i don't
personally want to do it - i just want to click and start using the app. And
if you really really never want to add 3rd party repository, please fill bug
against apt package - it let's you to do it from command line. I just want to
write easy to use gui for that.
Btw, there is 3rdparty qtmoko apt repository with 30 application in every
QtMoko installation. I never heard someone had problem with it.
