Description Michael Schwendt 2010-06-30 16:58:29 UTC
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:Guidelines#Packaging_Static_Libraries_2

Build: llvm-2.7-5.fc14.src.rpm

llvm-ocaml-devel
    contains only static libraries,
    but no virtual -static package is provided

Comment 1 Bryan O'Sullivan 2010-06-30 17:16:25 UTC
This is normal packaging procedure for ocaml packages. If you want that addressed, take it up with the ocaml SIG, then reopen this bug or file a new one once they've sorted out what they want to do and have their approach implemented.

Yes, see packaging list where I've asked about Haskell, OCaml and other exceptions. I'm automating these tests, so the occasional false positive is only temporary. ;)
