glibc-static should be multilib
Last modified: 2014-03-16 23:17:47 EDT
Description of problem:
With F-11 the new subpackage `glibc-static' should be multilib the same way as is currently `glibc-devel'.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
yum install /usr/lib/libc.a
No package /usr/lib/libc.a available.

- split static libraries into glibc-static subpackage
Hm, we don't do this for any other -static packages. But I could see glibc being a special case.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
On further thought, considering how much we try and avoid supporting static binaries, I'm not sure we need to do this for now.
I admit I needed a few times to grab by hand glibc-static of the other arch, e.g. to test 32-bit prelink on x86_64 box. But it wasn't just glibc-static, but also elfutils-libelf-devel-static, libselinux-static, etc.
