Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 234928
.static binaries aren't really needed
Last modified: 2008-05-28 14:54:04 EDT

dynamic and including the static binaries just bloats the packages.
These are very useful for people doing derived distos...
I'm happy to not have to reconfigure base packages
Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported
against rawhide during the development of a Fedora release that is no
longer maintained. In order to refocus our efforts as a project we are
flagging all of the open bugs for releases which are no longer
maintained. If this bug remains in NEEDINFO thirty (30) days from now,
we will automatically close it.
If you can reproduce this bug in a maintained Fedora version (7, 8, or
rawhide), please change this bug to the respective version and change
the status to ASSIGNED. (If you're unable to change the bug's version
or status, add a comment to the bug and someone will change it for you.)
Thanks for your help, and we apologize again that we haven't handled
these issues to this point.
The process we're following is outlined here:
We will be following the process here:

doesn't happen again.
