Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1000260
php-simplepie bundles Flash files
Last modified: 2015-03-03 10:00:16 EST
This package contains binary files that are typically excuted by the Flash
player or another similar program.
These files are not permitted in Fedora.  Everything we produce needs to
be built from source. 
The offending file(s) shipped in this package are:
If these files are just a fallback for something that is now supported by modern
web standards like the HTML5 <video> element, please just remove the binaries.
If removing these files would seriously cripple your application, please let me
know so we can figure out a solution.
If you have any questions, please shout. Thanks!
any updates on this package? As of today, installing wordpress from fedora repo pulls in php-simplepie as a dependency; the flash files are still included with no change.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 22 development cycle.
Changing version to '22'.
