Description Enrico Scholz 2006-12-21 12:22:57 EST
Description of problem:

The db4 package contains both a plain C and a C++ library. Because the C library
can be used standalone and the C++ library adds additional dependencies, the C++
part should be shipped in an own subpackage.

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

Comment 1 Jindrich Novy 2007-07-31 10:12:43 EDT
Ok, I moved the C++ stuff to separate subpackages in Fedora devel CVS.

Thanks for noticing.
Comment 2 Robert Scheck 2007-08-19 17:14:47 EDT
No, I don't think it is clever to cause a package bloat rather a dependency 
bloat. Please revert this change immediately - see devel mailing lists, too.
Comment 3 Jindrich Novy 2007-08-20 04:51:41 EDT
Could you point me to the relevant posts directly so that I can see what's wrong
with it from your POV? Moving C++ stuff to a subpackage makes perfectly sense
for me so I'm not currently willing to revert it.

db4 was split to C/C++ packages since F8.
