I noticed that in revised haskell guidelines , there is mentioned the

This seems to be a bit inconsistent to me. So my question is: shouldn't
we standardize some best practices with regards of RPM macros? For
example for Ruby, we placed the macros into -devel subpackages, because
we believe that it is just development dependency. Any opinions?
Is this inconsistency causing problems? I think it is okay for the
maintainers to make a call as to which package provides the macros,
based on the specific environment.
