Description Tolga Dalman 2015-01-17 09:05:23 UTC
This has changed from version 1.10, where a plain dependency on boost was defined.
Comment 1 Mr. Bones. (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2015-01-17 09:43:01 UTC
yes, it requires boost[nls].
Comment 2 Tolga Dalman 2015-01-17 10:29:37 UTC
In that case I cannot agree with your resolution.
Either the dependency on boost[nls] is wrong, or wesnoth[-nls] makes no sense.
Hence, the bug is still valid, IMHO.

Comment 3 Mr. Bones. (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2015-01-17 10:39:24 UTC
nls controls the install of the language files.  To build it still needs boost[nls].
Comment 4 Tolga Dalman 2015-01-17 10:54:57 UTC
I understand that and I can certainly follow your position as wesnoth package maintainer. src/gettext_boost.cpp unconditionally includes boost/locale.hpp. This dependency is also documented in the INSTALL file.

Still it is awkward from my perspective. From a high level view, this is basically the interaction with Gentoo:

  User: Please install wesnoth without nls.
  Gentoo: Ack, will do. You still need to enable nls for a dependent package.

I have nls globally disabled, hence, this requirement feels plain wrong to me.
Comment 5 Tolga Dalman 2015-01-17 11:14:37 UTC
I filed a bug report at upstream. I propose to keep this bug open as long as it is open there.
