Description Pavel Raiskup 2015-10-15 15:29:49 EDT
One issue I found while I was trying to resolve bug 1190346 is that
'postgresql-devel' requires 'postgresql' package (which happens to be multilib
unclean at this moment).

I haven't found the reason for this requirement, one might be that that
'/usr/bin/pg_config' is packaged in 'postgresql'.  But because '*-devel' always
requires '*-libs', we could probably put 'pg_config' into 'postgresql-libs'.
Removing this binary from 'postgresql' would not hurt because 'postgresql'
requires 'postgresql-libs'.
Comment 1 Pavel Raiskup 2015-10-16 10:06:58 EDT
After discussion with Honza, we decided to move the 'pg_config' from
postgresql to postgresql-devel (not into postgresql-libs).  This is to minimize
postgreqsl-libs payload which is definitely desired.
