Description Helmut K. C. Tessarek 2014-11-06 20:18:25 UTC
Description of problem:

gettext-devel depends on git

Additional info:

Mail correspondence with Daiki Ueno:

> Can you please remove the git dependency for gettext-devel?
> This is supposed to be a development package (mainly include files).

> AFAIK this is the only *-devel package which depends on git.

Actually, it _was_ needed for autopoint (a developer script, like
autoconf or automake), when we used git as a compression method of
/usr/share/gettext/archive.dir.*.  Now that the default changed to
tar.xz, git shouldn't be necessary anymore.

> I truly believe this is a bug. Can you please fix this?

Could you please file a bug on bugzilla.redhat.com, so we don't forgot
to fix it on the next update?

Comment 6 Pavel Raiskup 2017-01-26 11:50:03 UTC
Reopening because I think this was actually not fixed correctly.  Having
'%bcond_without git' implies '%{with git}' is still 1, thus the dependency
was not really removed.
