It would be nice if Archlinux had debug packages like some other distros are shipping. Would it be possible to create these debug packages as split packages? When I report errors to upstream I have to recompile some packages with debug symbols so that I can write a good bug report (for example perf profiles are mostly useless without symbols). Perhaps this would make Archlinux also more attractive for developers?

What is your opinion on that matter?

This task depends upon
