Description Daniel McNamara 2006-11-19 06:39:36 UTC
Description of problem:

mysql-server you be removed as a dependecy - results in unesscary bloat

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install wordpress from fedora extras
2. See mysql-server get dragged into depedencies
3. Sigh at extra bloat
Actual results:

mysql-server installed when it's not really needed

Expected results:

Dependecy to be set to what the package actually needs not whats most convenient

Additional info:

Yes in a majority of cases the mysql server will be on the same server as the
wordpress install - however like just about every mysql connecting application
it can use a remote mysql server. As such mysql-server should be removed as
dependcy as wordpress does not require it to be on the same machine.

Dependency removed in 2.0.4-3 (FE4-6) / 2.0.5-2 (FE-devel)

Comment 2 Daniel McNamara 2006-12-04 05:13:12 UTC
I'm afraid it's still there - from the wordpress.spec file for 2.0.4-3

Requires: php >= 4.1.0, httpd, mysql-server, php-mysql

Comment 3 John Berninger 2006-12-06 00:49:34 UTC
Drat - looks like I hit 4, 5, and devel and missed 6.  Should be updated now.

Comment 4 Daniel McNamara 2006-12-08 04:39:53 UTC
Confirmed it's all good as of 2.0.4-4
