Description Wade Mealing 2011-09-10 13:30:50 UTC
Description of problem:

Pcre is an odd package, has userspace tools, libs and friends but should this be broken up into 3 different packages ?

Should it also have a autotools .pc file included in the package ?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Name        : pcre
Version     : 8.12
Release     : 3.fc15

Expected results:

pcre-libs.rpm <- containing libs
pcre-tools.rpm <- containing the /usr/bin stuff ?

Possible addition of pkg-config "pc" style file so it can be picked up in config.

Additional info:

I know this functionality overlaps a little with pcre-config.  And maybe splitting it up into two packages isnt worth it.  Totally your call.

Closing this bug, late night brain not working, its in pcre-devel.

Comment 2 Petr Pisar 2011-09-12 12:48:25 UTC
The /usr/bin applications have been sub-packaged in F17.
