Description Peter Hutterer 2020-11-05 03:43:08 UTC
xorg-x11-xkb-utils is an aggregate package, shipping a few tools that should be in their own respective packages, see [1]. Of these tigervnc requires only xkbcomp.

We've had Provides: xkbcomp in xorg-x11-xkb-utils for years:
$ dnf repoquery --whatprovides  xkbcomp
Last metadata expiration check: 0:07:46 ago on Thu 05 Nov 2020 13:32:47.

tigervnc should switch to Requires: xkbcomp so we can actually obsolete the aggregate package and start using separate packages.
