Description Igor Raits 2019-07-21 11:11:48 UTC

Fedora Packaging Guidelines allow dependencies only on files/directories from /usr/bin, /usr/sbin and /etc directories[0].
Your package depends on files/directories outside of those. See below for more information about package/dependencies.

  - /usr/lib64/libfbclient.so

Please correct those or provide reason why is it correct.
It is very important to not download huge filelists.xml just because few packages in distribution depend on non-standard paths.

Thanks for cooperation!

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 31 development cycle.
Changing version to 31.

Comment 2 Petr Pisar 2019-08-22 07:27:59 UTC
Maintainer's reason is building the same spec file for Fedora as well as EPEL 6:

    Buildrequire libfbclient.so rather firebird-devel to cover building with firebird 2.5.x and 3.0.x without conditionals
