Description Patrik Kis 2015-08-20 11:25:16 EDT
Description of problem:

The 32bit version of krb5-server and krb5-server-ldap (i.e. krb5-server.i686, krb5-server.s390, krb5-server.ppc) are distributed in Fedora. But krb5-server contains no libs and krb5-server-ldap has only internal API. Therefore it should not be distributed at all. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Additional info:
If these packages will be blacklisted, it would be nice to add the as obsolete in the krb5 spec file too.
Comment 2 Fedora Admin XMLRPC Client 2015-09-01 17:36:06 EDT
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database.  Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
Comment 3 Robbie Harwood 2016-01-28 15:33:38 EST
Sorry, why is this needed?  These packages are perfectly functional in Fedora, and have the same contents across all architectures as far as I know.  Is there some bit of Fedora policy I'm missing?
Comment 4 Nalin Dahyabhai 2016-01-28 15:52:45 EST
I expect this is about keeping the 32-bit versions of those packages out of the 64-bit trees.  Unlike other plugins in krb5-libs and krb5-pkinit, the plugins in krb5-server and krb5-server-ldap are only used by the KDC, so there's no point in including versions of them that don't match architecture of the KDC binary.
Comment 5 Patrik Kis 2016-01-29 03:25:20 EST
Yes they are functional, but these 2 sub-packages are needless, as Nalin pointed out (thanks), so I believe the full functionality will be kept without them.
Comment 6 Robbie Harwood 2016-01-29 12:17:19 EST
Thanks.  I've opened a rel-eng ticket.

This should be fixed for fc24.
