Description of problem:
tcl-8.3.5-92 supplied with EL AS and WS 3 does not contain the include
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.attempt to use tcl include files
tcl not included in bugzilla components, tcltk chosen as nearest
[correct the source package for RHEL 3 is tcltk]
There are plans in the works to release the tcltk -devel
packages before too long.

This is not a tcl -devel or tcltk -devel problem. Previous releases
of tcl include the header files. See listing of files in RH 9 tcl
I agree with comment #2 above - the tcl.h has always been distributed
as part of the base tcl packages in previous RHL products. tcl.h is
used by too many other packages to limit to a tcl-devel package.
Well the current srpm packages the header files in
tcl-devel, and this package was excluded from the initial
RHEL 3 release. My understanding is that this is going
to be rectified in a RHEL 3 update soon.
The header files are only needed for building tcl apps, not
running them, that is why they was moved to a separate subpackage
Changed to 'CLOSED' state since 'RESOLVED' has been deprecated.
