Description Richard W.M. Jones 2008-10-29 11:41:40 UTC
MinGW packaging guidelines were recently approved for Fedora:


All mingw32-* packages are designed for Fedora developers to
use.  There aren't any "end user" mingw32 packages.  Thus we
reasoned the split between foo/foo-devel in Fedora doesn't
apply, and the packaging committee agreed when they approved
the guidelines.

Thus files which would normally be found only in foo-devel
packages in native Fedora, can be found in mingw32-* packages.

For example:

mingw32-iconv.noarch: W: devel-file-in-non-devel-package /usr/i686-pc-mingw32/sys-root/mingw/include/iconv.h
mingw32-iconv.noarch: W: devel-file-in-non-devel-package /usr/i686-pc-mingw32/sys-root/mingw/lib/libcharset.a
mingw32-iconv.noarch: W: devel-file-in-non-devel-package /usr/i686-pc-mingw32/sys-root/mingw/lib/libcharset.dll.a
(bug 467325)

mingw32-libvirt.noarch: W: devel-file-in-non-devel-package /usr/i686-pc-mingw32/sys-root/mingw/lib/pkgconfig/libvirt.pc
(bug 467418)

Comment 1 Richard W.M. Jones 2008-10-29 12:29:05 UTC
This warning is also seen with *.hpp files (in C++ packages)
and with the 'bin/*-config' scripts used by some programs.

Comment 2 Bug Zapper 2008-11-26 04:25:15 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.

More information and reason for this action is here:

Closing - rpmlint no longer reports this as a problem.
