Another dep of webkitgtk.

I successfully tested one using this:

I show icu4c as part of the default install

Do you still need a separate package?

I guess the problem may be a naming issue within the webkitgtk package.
It lists "icu >= 4.2" as a dep instead of "icu4c", so it throws an error.
Not sure if other packages are looking for the same thing.

- webkitgtk is not part of a default Light install, that's why I'm finding this.

I'll be off work in 2 hours. I'll have a look at packaging webitgtk at my end.

Maybe just work around with a dummy package "icu" that has "icu4c" a a dep?

yeah, that could work. But I think I would like a webkitgtk in the repository.  Seems to be one of those packages that is part of the iso but whose source never got uploaded.

Also, I assume you are upgrading webkitgtk-1.3.4 (which is already on vl-light alpha 8).  Does this have to do with the Midori package you are trying to build?

Where might I find the source you are working with?
pm, me as to when you might be available on the irc.  I might understand more if we can have a bit more dialog on this.
