I'm not sure what you are reading between my lines. I'm not a
native English speaker so maybe I misused a word and I apologize for
I explained in a former mail the package type "design time". Then you asked about "is that a design time package",
which depending on context can mean different things. This is not your
fault. As I explained earlier it is hard to give the four types
unambiguous names. Maybe someone has better names for them.
