I would like to see aria2c depend on libmetalink to ensure that any metalink related updates are done to that library.

    aria2 will use libmetalink in the future when libmetalink is widely available in the several distributions.

     
  • i suggest to think the other way around: most libraries get packaged because an application starts depending on them. so if you introduce a dependency on libmetalink distros packaging aria2 will add packages for libmetalink.
