This is a tracking bug for Change: pkgconf as system pkg-config implementation
For more details, see: https://fedoraproject.org//wiki/Changes/pkgconf_as_system_pkg-config_implementation
This change switches Fedora's system-wide/default pkg-config implementation to pkgconf, a new implementation of pkg-config that provides better support for handling .pc files and a stable library ABI/API for integrating into applications.
pkgconf-1.2.0-1.fc26 has taken over as the system pkg-config implementation in Rawhide, seamlessly replacing pkgconfig with no ill effects thus far.
Now, pkgconfig just needs to be excluded from the mass rebuild so that the versioned Obsoletes+Provides continue to work.
pkgconf-1.2.1-2.fc26 has the Obsoletes+Conflicts adjusted so that the range is inclusive, so that even when pkgconfig is rebuilt in the mass rebuild, pkgconf will remain the favored provider of pkg-config.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 26 development cycle.
Changing version to '26'.
On 2017-May-16 we reached the "Change Checkpoint: 100% Code Complete Deadline" milestone for Fedora 26 release. At this point all the Changes not at least in "ON_QA" state should be brought to FESCo for review. Please update the state of this bug to "ON_QA" if it is already 100% completed. Please let me know in case you have any trouble with the implementation and the Change needs any help or review.
I have added release notes text for this change to the draft F26 Release Notes here: https://pagure.io/release-notes/c/41139602d4f6fdc9f577aed2e4df837932e4c364?branch=f26
Please would you take a look at the draft and let me know if anything should be added or changed?
