Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 432443
split out text utilities to a subpackage
Last modified: 2010-09-08 10:04:23 EDT
Description of problem:
kdesdk provides a number of commandline utilities that have no dependency
or qt or kde, but are used by some packages at buildtime, etc.
Since kdesdk and all its deps is huge it would be very nice if those
text utilities could all be moved to a separate subpackage.
Not sure on the best name: how about kdesdk-utilities?
Steps to Reproduce:
1. build a package which requires po2xml
need to BR: kdesdk
just BR a small package containing po2xml.
debian has poxml and Mandriva has kdesdk-po2xml.
I think this is the list of files in /usr/bin that do not depend on any kde libs:
for i in `rpm -ql kdesdk | grep /usr/bin`; do ldd $i | ( grep -q libkde $i ||
echo $i ) ; done

I'll see about trying to make this happen today.
1. I'm currently leaning toward naming this kdesdk-utils. In the meantime,
I'll continue to look for better pkg name alternatives (and precedents from
2. It will initially include:
as required by publican. We can consider adding other goodies, when/if it
