Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 203554
a -devel package should be split + missing requires
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:41 EST
Description of problem:
The include files, .so, .a and pkgconfig files should be in a
-devel package. This devel package should depend on the right
-devel packages for the include files required by the shipped
include files (like dbus-glib-devel, libglade2-devel maybe more,
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:

such that it leaves time to workaround things that break?
The -devel package should also

See Bug 203547 for a similar case, and explanations.

and we don't want gnome-applets to bring in -devel packages.
Too late for this kind of breakage-inducing change for F7 now.
Fixed in 2.18.0-8.fc8
