Description Rex Dieter 2006-03-23 13:04:16 EST
openobex-devel installs /usr/lib/pkgconfig/openobex.pc
which needs pkgconfig to properly function.

Also, I see for -devel subpkg:
Requires: %{name} = 0:%{version}-%{release}
The 0 is bogus, and should be dropped... there are no Epochs at work here.
Comment 1 Harald Hoyer 2006-03-24 05:33:00 EST
openobex-devel does not require pkgconfig and the 0 epoch stays...
Comment 2 Rex Dieter 2006-06-21 08:02:44 EDT
BuildRequires: pkgconfig
not is not added to openobex-devel, any app that
BuildRequires: openobex-devel
will fail to build when the new "stripped buildroot" version of mock (version >=
0.6) is deployed for Fedora Extras.
Comment 3 Harald Hoyer 2006-06-22 06:33:05 EDT
If s.th. uses pkgconfig to build s.th. then it should BuildRequires that.
Comment 4 Rex Dieter 2006-06-22 06:41:10 EDT
FYI, this issue is being discussed on the fedora-packaging(@redhat.list) list. 
You probably know my opinion, but if you'd like to chime in, please do so.  

No final decision has been reached yet, but it does appear the consensus atm is
that -devel pkgs with .pc files should Requires: pkgconfig.
