Comment 1 Ondrej Vasik 2010-05-03 13:03:42 UTC
That's NOTABUG - see http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/Guidelines#Exceptions_2 . Build Requires for C++ compiler are not required.

Comment 2 Tim Landscheidt 2010-05-05 20:47:46 UTC
Sorry, I wasn't aware of that guideline. Is there a package similar to redhat-lsb that unites these dependencies?

Comment 3 Ondrej Vasik 2010-05-06 05:35:12 UTC
Good point, I don't know about such package - but it sounds like a good idea. Maybe you could ask about that on devel@lists.fedoraproject.org to have wider audience (maybe there is already some group in comps which could be installed to achieve this - I'm not sure).
