libacl-devel: Remove nfs-utils-lib dependency
Last modified: 2010-08-07 19:26:04 EDT
Description of problem:
The libacl-devel package currently depends on nfs-utils-lib.
As far as I can tell, this is unnecessary.
The dependency was first added here:
However, a few revisions later, support for NFS was dropped:
The nfs-utils-lib-devel and openldap-devel "BuildRequires" dependencies were removed, but the nfs-utils-lib and openldap "Requires" dependencies were not. This appears to be an oversight.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install libacl-devel
It pulls in nfs-utils, nfs-utils-lib, and rpcbind. I don't want any of those.
Only libacl-devel should be installed.
Thanks for filing the bug! You're right, the dependencies are there by mistake and should go away. I dropped them already in rawhide a month ago, no problem to do the same in F-13 branch.
