Description rene 2005-01-11 14:17:36 UTC
I wonder whether a -database is possible/makes sane when we already split all 
the other components out to extra packages (-writer, -calc, ...). Woould get 
some consistency but probably also some complexity because openoffice would 
have to depend/requiere/... one of those to be actually useful..

Please have a look.
Comment 2 rene 2005-02-07 18:45:49 UTC
besides the fact that a -database would be useful the current package splitting 
is a bit suboptimal. For example, libwpft is in -core. It is a WordPerfect 
writer filter so it probably should be in -writer. There probably is more stuff 
like that too. Also useful would be a -binfilter, we have -xsltfileter and 
-graphicfilter too. That would reduce the size of -core immense and would help 
people trying to provide two different installsets size-wise (i.e. with 
--with-system-foo and with internal one). In the wpft case I need to duplicate 
-core, where -duplicating -writer would be easier, faster and would need lesser
