This new package currently conflicts with libsigc++20 from Fedora
Extras, since it upgrades the older version for the older API which
we've kept in a package called libsigc++.
The package in Fedora Core Development is based on an old package from
Red Hat Linux, which has flaws. It owns /usr/share/doc, contains
libsigc-2.0.so in the wrong package, it contains duplicates of the
%doc files from the main package in the -devel package, it should
require pkgconfig in the -devel package, and it moves the html docs
to a different directory. A copy of the GPL ought to be included, btw.
Please don't ignore Fedora Extras like this.
package removed again from core. we got out wires a little crossed here.
