Description Clément DAVID 2016-02-19 10:41:39 EST
Description of problem:

The devel package should not require the documentation. Quoting the guidelines :

> For example API documentation belongs in the -devel subpackage, not the main one. Or if there's a lot of documentation, consider putting it into a subpackage. In this case, it is recommended to use *-doc as the subpackage name. 

So either put everything into the -devel package or provide a -doc package for API documentation without pulling it automatically on -devel install.

Thanks for the report. I sent a patch upstream:

Comment 2 Cole Robinson 2016-04-20 09:16:22 EDT
Upstream now:

commit feffcc03a0d3690dcffd860682dcbaa61d726b39
Author: Cole Robinson <crobinso@redhat.com>
Date:   Wed Apr 13 10:37:42 2016 -0400

    spec: Only pull in API docs with -devel package

I've pulled this into the libvirt upstream v1.2.18-maint branch, next time we rebase in f23 it will be fixed. Just closing otherwise since it's not a big deal
