Description Bill Nottingham 2003-08-07 18:41:24 UTC
Taroon isn't intended to be fully self-hosting in the packages shipped with it;
some of the -devel packages are removed  to limit ABI support liability (keep
customers/ISVs from using libraries that we don't want to live with forever).

While limiting ABI exposure is a reasonable principle, it is
disingenuous to say that's the reason why tcl and libwnck packages are
missing.

They're prerequisites for GNOME and Anaconda. I don't THINK the plan
is to desupport GNOME and Anaconda.

Many of these -devel packages BETTER get re-insterted QUICKLY, and an
OPEN and INFORMED review process of what gets removed needs to take
place to maintain Red Hat's credibility here.

Through out-of-band communication I learned that many dev packages
were getting added back into RHE.

Sure enough, Update 2 has many dev packages added back in.  The ones
that we care about are there.  I'm adding this comment in case others
find this bug and wonder what the final disposition was.
