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: and  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:
