Description Stepan Kasal 2008-06-02 11:39:07 EDT
I was trapped today by the misdesign of curl command, see bug #449369.
So I'd like to remove curl (not libcurl) from my machine.

I cannot co that, because git requires it.  But it seems that git calls curl
only in two places: git-clone.sh and git-ls-remote.sh.  Couldn't these two be
rewritten so that libcurl would be enough for the whole git.

Yeah, this is an enhancement request and I'm not providing the patch (yet), sorry.

"Require: curl" and perhaps replace "BuildReuire: curl-devel" by "BuildRequire:
