DEP-BLOAT: move C++ stuff into own subpackage
Last modified: 2013-07-02 19:19:09 EDT
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):
Ok, I moved the C++ stuff to separate subpackages in Fedora devel CVS.
Thanks for noticing.
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.
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.
