Description Natanael Copa 2011-06-13 04:44:22 UTC
Currently gobject-introspection depends on cairo and ships cairo-1.0.typelib.

This create problems when distros start enables the gl backend since then will you get a circular build dependency:

gobject-introspection depends on cairo which depends on mesa which depends on libdrm which depends on udev which depends on gobject-introspection.

It is possible to workaround it by building things in two stages or by splitting packages, but the proper long-time solution is probably that cairo does the instrospection and ship typelib itself, rather than gobject-introspection package does this.

I wouldn't mind if the gobject-introspection stuff lives inside cairo. But keep in mind that there is no cairo introspection in existance. The code existing in gobject-introspection is just the minimum required to make GTK introspection work.
