Description Dave Malcolm 2007-01-10 08:46:32 EST
The way Evolution is packaged it currently has a runtime dependency on gnome-pilot.

rpm -qR evolution | grep pilot
gnome-pilot >= 2.0.13

The gnome-pilot dependency pulls in various dependencies in the pilot stack.

Suggest that for Fedora 7 and beyond the built components depending on
gnome-pilot be factored out into a separate evolution-pilot subpackage in the
evolution specfile, which would take the Requires: gnome-pilot and this
subpackage be made optional in the Fedora comps file, since not all Evolution
users will want this stack.  The Evolution specfile would still have a
BuildRequires on gnome-pilot-devel

I believe it's just the pilot conduits that would need to live in this subpackage:
rpm -ql evolution | grep conduits

Sounds good to me!
Comment 2 Dave Malcolm 2007-01-10 15:43:57 EST
You may want to doublecheck things; this is based on my half-remembered
knowledge of how the pilot stuff in evo works :-)

I think a user submitted a patch for this in a different bug that I can't find
at the moment.  I plan to attempt this split for Fedora 9.
