Description of problem:
Package gnome-panel contains C headers and pkgconfig files.
But it doesn't depend on any -devel packages which would satisfy its requirements.
Software developers who develop for gnome-panel would need to solve missing
dependencies manually in order to make the included pkgconfig support work.
Packagers would need to add explicit dependencies, too, before a package would
The included libpanelapplet-2.0.pc pkgconfig file lists
so a separate gnome-panel-devel should require the corresponding -devel packages
I don't know whether Red Hat support pkgconfig to that level. That's why I file
this as an RFE instead of a bug. But it would be really helpful if the
dependencies of -devel packages matched the dependencies of included pkgconfig
templates. Everything else is a dependency nightmare.

The test update to gnome-panel-2.4.2-1 does not solve this issue yet.
Don't rush to push to the main tree. You don't want to do many updates
to the main tree in a short time.
If you give this a week or two we can probably resolve a significant
part of the outstanding bugs with a single update.
