Description Patrice Dumas 2006-08-22 13:41:48 UTC
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,
maybe less).

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

The -devel package should also 
Requires: pkgconfig

Comment 2 Matthias Clasen 2006-11-17 17:29:56 UTC
why break things in the first place ?

Comment 3 Patrice Dumas 2006-11-17 17:41:42 UTC
See Bug 203547 for a similar case, and explanations.
In that case there are missing requires of -devel packages, 
and we don't want gnome-applets to bring in -devel packages.

Too late for this kind of breakage-inducing change for F7 now. 

Comment 5 Matthias Clasen 2007-05-22 02:53:48 UTC
Fixed in 2.18.0-8.fc8
