Description Ralf Corsepius 2006-03-03 05:28:51 EST
Description of problem:

The default buildroots.xml files as being used by mock
http://fedoraproject.org/buildgroups/*/*/buildroots.xml
contain several packages of doubtful usefulness for a buildsystem.

In particular:
* gdb
* strace 
* indent

I can hardly imagine situations where these will be applied when building
packages. Even if they should be needed by something, I hardly can imagine
reasons why these packages couldn't handle these deps by explicit
"BuildRequires" and why these would justify pulling them into a default buildroot.

It seems to be that these packages have been removed from the default buildroot,
so I guess this can be closed.

Yes - Wondering why the bug owner didn't ...
