Description Rex Dieter 2006-11-10 10:03:02 EST
file-devel should include stuff like %{_includedir}/* and %{_libdir}/lib*.so
(just general Packaging Guidelines mumbo jumbo).

This came up mostly because of a package of mine currently in Extras that ends
up with x86_64/multilib dependency issues because libmagic.so.1.i386 doesn't
live in the x86_64 (Core) repo.  If file-devel existed, then it would get pulled
into the multilib mix (automatically) too.

Martin, ping, I've got a package with broken deps for 30+ days in fc7 Extras
repo due to this.
Comment 2 Rex Dieter 2006-12-30 21:02:53 EST
ping ping, now with 60+ days of silence.  We may need to send someone looking
for you. (:
Comment 3 Rex Dieter 2006-12-30 21:04:13 EST
FYI, it's Extras/gift bug #221041 that has the multilib problem due to this.

There is no file-devel package. I requested one some time ago. I close
that bug as a duplicate of mine. Feel free to reopen if you find 
it is wrong.

First of all sorry for not responding for so long :(. 

According to my information libmagic was not intended to be standalone library
and had not stable api in the past, so I didn't want to split the package. 
As libmagic is quite powerful library and number of requests for spliting is
growing I decided to meet this wishes.

Finally I upgraded to file-4.19-1.fc7 and splited file into file, file-devel and
file-libs packages. 

Hope this will be helpfull.
