Description Petr Pisar 2015-10-08 05:24:12 EDT
lighttpd-fastcgi package run-requires spawn-fcgi. spawn-fcgi is orphaned now and it will be removed from distribution if nobody will adopt it. Is the dependency needed?

lighttpd.spec says:

%package fastcgi
Summary: FastCGI module and spawning helper for lighttpd and PHP configuration
Group: System Environment/Daemons
Requires: %{name} = %{version}-%{release}
# Not really a requirement, but it used to be included (until 1.4.20-5)
Requires: spawn-fcgi

And grepping the lighttpd-fastcgi does reveal any spawn-fcgi invocation. There only few documentation files mentioning it.

I feel spawn-fcgi package itself is not needed if you have systemd <http://redmine.lighttpd.net/projects/spawn-fcgi/wiki/Systemd>. Indeed the package in Fedora delivers System V init scripts only.

I propose to remove spawn-fcgi dependency from the lighttpd-fastcgi package.

(Notice: I have no experience with FastCGI, so possibly I'm not right. I noticed this issue because many Perl packages depends on lighttpd.)

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 24 development cycle.
Changing version to '24'.

More information and reason for this action is here:

spawn-fcgi was only orphaned for a short time.  I am the active maintainer and it will continue to be available.
