How to separate library and development files

Asked by Saikrishna Arcot


This is my first PPA on Launchpad. I have a package where the Makefile generated by cmake installs both the library files and the development files, causing both to be in a single package. However, the Debian Policy Manual states that library and development files should be separated into two packages. Is there any way to do this on Launchpad while still using the recipe build feature?
