This is a tracking bug for Change: Pcre Deprecation
For more details, see: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/PcreDeprecation
Upstream stopped the support for the old 'pcre' package. It only supports the new 'pcre2' version, so Fedora should deprecate it so it could later be retired and removed from Fedora entirely.
If you encounter a bug related to this Change, please do not comment here. Instead create a new bug and set it to block this bug.
Commit that deprecated the package and its sub-packages have been added to the rawhide branch.
Do we need to rebuild this package as well, or is the work done for the deprecation?
Today we reached the Code Complete (100% complete) milestone on the F38 schedule: https://fedorapeople.org/groups/schedule/f-38/f-38-key-tasks.html
At this time, all F38 Changes should be 100% complete. You can indicate this by setting this tracker to the ON_QA status. If you need to defer this Change to F39 please NEEDINFO me.
Note that we are entering the Beta freeze. Additional package changes to complete this Change will need an approved blocker or freeze exception. See https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/QA:SOP_blocker_bug_process and https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/QA:SOP_freeze_exception_bug_process for more information.
Changes that have not reached the ON_QA status will be given to FESCo for evaluation of contingency plans.
what's current status/plan on pcre(v1) drop from release?
this bug, & status @
suggest f38 was targeted release
but, this still has lots of open deps.
and, on f*39*, attempt to `dnf remove pcre` still looks pretty fatal ...

Hi, the package has been deprecated.
I've filled a bug for each dependency to port to pcre2, but I can't force anyone when it's just deprecated.
The package maintainers should want to do that themselves as the pcre is no longer supported.
