Split transmission package into libtransmission, transmission (gtk)
Last modified: 2008-09-09 06:14:31 EDT
Description of problem:
The transmission package should be split into libtransmission (and -devel package) and transmission (for GTK program).
libtransmission is in a directory in the transmission release tarball, which can be used separately by 3rd party programs.
Please note that transmission and libtransmission (both in the same release tarball) are licensed differently.

There are no development files or headers installed by transmission. Are you aware of any projects that are currently building on top of it ? (and if so, how do they link with transmission header files).
Unless there exists such a project, I don't see a good reason to split the current RPM, especially since it has a relatively small size (< 1MB). The dual licensing is not an issue, and will be properly documented in the license field of the version 1.33 spec file.
