Description Christian Stadelmann 2017-04-04 19:51:11 UTC
Description of problem:
Currently, libguestfs depends on gnupg 1.x package. Please make libguestfs use gnupg 2.x too, so I don't need to install gnupg 1.x and all its dependencies.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run `$ dnf repoquery --resolve --requires libguestfs-tools-c` (requires the "repoquery" dnf plugin)

Additional info:
In case libguestfs does not need gnupg at all, please drop the dependency.

Comment 4 Richard W.M. Jones 2017-04-06 15:40:22 UTC
Upstream in libguestfs >= 1.37.9.

Soon in Fedora Rawhide / 27.

This is a candidate for libguestfs 1.36.4 in Fedora 25/26,
but not for a little while.
