[alpine-devel] Re: Meta package for pulling in all dev packages

What if we added ` install_if="devs $pkgname=$pkgver-r$pkgrel" ` to and
created an APKBUILD `devs` just like `docs` ? Would it work?

BTW, I was reading
In default_doc I found a possible resource waste.
If I understand it, the ` install_if ` is reading checking *all*
packages to see if the name is ` docs `.
Isn't that dumb?

Wouldn't be a better idea to put that line into the docs package itself?
doc() {
    install_if="docs $pkgname=$pkgver-r$pkgrel"

What you think?
