Ah, I will make it.
There's the "libsyncevo" branch now. I just had a look at it and have
Do we want to install header files in "/usr/include/syncevo" or
"/usr/include/syncevolution"? I suggested the later and still prefer the
full name instead of the shorthand.
If I read the last patch in that branch right, then EDS and glib header
files are now a hard dependency for using libsyncevolution
(syncevolution.pc.in: Requires: libedataserver-1.2 libebook-1.2
libecal-1.2 glib-2.0; #ifdefs removed from several header files). Is
that intentional or is the goal to change that again?
We can keep the config.h usage and the ifdefs in our header files. We
just have to be careful that we include config.h like this
# include <config.h>
and that none of the ifdefs affect structs that are part of the API.
For example, in EvolutionSmartPtr.h, "#ifdef HAVE_GLIB" only adds some
declarations. The header file can be used just fine by a client program
without those if it doesn't provide a config.h or doesn't use GLib
