Bug Description

Binary package hint: testdisk

PhotoRec is packaged as part of Testdisk. Even if packaged in the same source tarball, they provide very different functionalities: partition recovery vs image files recovery. Could it be moved to a separate package?

The split requires no -common package: http://packages.ubuntu.com/hardy/amd64/testdisk/filelist lists

/usr/sbin/photorec
/usr/sbin/testdisk
/usr/share/doc/testdisk/...
/usr/share/man/man1/photorec.1.gz
/usr/share/man/man1/testdisk.1.gz

It could be split to

testdisk:
/usr/sbin/testdisk
/usr/share/man/man1/testdisk.1.gz

photorec:
/usr/sbin/photorec
/usr/share/man/man1/photorec.1.gz

There is already a separate bug request for an additional -doc package.

In testdisk 7.0 developers added GUI tool - QPhotoRec and because of this Testdisk package must be split at least in 3 binary packages: PhotoRec, QPhotoRec and Testdisk
QPhotoRec is a Graphical User Interface (Qt based GUI) version of PhotoRec. More user friendly, it recognizes the same file formats.
See http://cgsecurity.org/wiki/TestDisk_7.0_Release#PhotoRec_.26_QPhotoRec for more info

summary: - Decouple PhotoRec from Testdisk
+ Separate PhotoRec and QPhotoRec from Testdisk
Changed in testdisk (Debian):
status: Unknown → New
