Description Patrice Dumas 2006-08-22 08:56:48 EDT
Description of problem:

I guess the include files are only used to develop plugins, so 
it would make sense to split them out of ppp, in a ppp-devel
package which should also contain the PLUGINS file in %doc.

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

Maybe it is the right time to make that change
such that it leaves time to workaround things that break?

Could I have your thoughts on this Patrice?
Comment 4 Patrice Dumas 2008-03-07 03:38:54 EST
There is a 
missing for the -devel package.

I also think that this subpackage should have
(and PLUGINS be removed from main package %doc)
Comment 5 Martin Nagy 2008-03-07 04:31:23 EST
About the PLUGINS, I was considering to move it, but then it seemed to me a bit
waste to have just this one file in a special directory. Also I think that there
are few bits of information useful even for a non-developer.
Comment 6 Martin Nagy 2008-03-12 05:31:12 EDT
ok, I included the PLUGINS in the -devel package after all.
Fixed with ppp-2.4.4-6.fc9

Changing component back to ppp, I have no idea how the heck did it change to
