Description Jeremy Katz 2007-04-02 17:32:39 EDT
The .static binaries aren't really needed anymore; our initramfs setup is now
dynamic and including the static binaries just bloats the packages.
Comment 1 Charlie Bennett 2007-04-06 13:24:23 EDT
These are very useful for people doing derived distos...
I'm happy to not have to reconfigure base packages
Comment 2 Bug Zapper 2008-04-03 19:54:37 EDT
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against rawhide during the development of a Fedora release that is no
longer maintained.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flagging all of the open bugs for releases which are no longer
maintained.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:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping to ensure this
doesn't happen again.
Comment 3 Alasdair Kergon 2008-05-06 12:51:37 EDT
inappropriate bug zapper comments.

But why this quick job has been sitting here for a year is anyone's guess...
