What I, somewhat newbie, miss here is a definition of a bundled library. Over time, I have began to develop an understanding that it's related to having an "upstream". Still, it's far from clear to me.
-- a shared library is there in one package. Bundled libraries come several times in several packages. See for example http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Library_(computing) and http://www.linuxtoday.com/developer/2010032502635OSDV . Pyluyten (talk) 10:31, 16 May 2013 (UTC)
