Description of problem:

The .so and .a should be in a -devel package. Or maybe not shipped
at all since there is no header.

Comment 1 Matthew Barnes 2006-10-30 16:28:39 EST
It looks like some of the scrollkeeper utilities dynamically link to

   $ ldd /usr/bin/scrollkeeper* | grep scrollkeeper

Does that not mean the .so needs to be packaged with the binaries?

I agree that I don't see much point in shipping libscrollkeeper.a.
Comment 2 Patrice Dumas 2006-10-30 16:51:52 EST
Indeed, but not against the /usr/lib/libscrollkeeper.so link.
It is only needed at build time, so should be in -devel.

If all that links against libscrollkeeper is in the 
scrollkeeper source package then the .so is no needed for them.
And the lack of headers certainly shows that it is not meant
to be linked against by programs outside of the scrollkeeper
package itself.
Comment 3 Matthew Barnes 2006-10-30 17:24:18 EST
Ah, I see.  Indeed there seems to be no packages requiring the .so or .a.

    $ repoquery --whatrequires libscrollkeeper.a
    $ repoquery --whatrequires libscrollkeeper.so
    $ repoquery --whatrequires libscrollkeeper.so.0

So a -devel package does not make sense.  I think I'd prefer to just not ship
those files.  Changing the summary appropriately.
