libtasn1: Gnulib bundled but no bundled(gnulib) provides
Last modified: 2013-08-26 05:45:53 EDT
A bundled copy of Gnulib - The GNU Portability Library  was found in
libtasn1. No Bundled Libraries section  of Packaging guidelines
gives more information on bundled libraries and how they should be handled.
Affected libtasn1 version: libtasn1-2.12-1.fc18
As a kind of copylib, Gnulib has been granted an exception. However, to comply
with Packaging guidelines, packages bundling Gnulib must note that the library
has been granted an exception in the spec file comment with a link to the FPC
ticket where the exception was granted and add a virtual provide to the spec
file to note that Gnulib is bundled. Refer to  for more details.
No comment about bundling Gnulib and no virtual provide were found in the
libtasn1.spec file. To comply with the packaging guideliness please
add an appropriate comment to the spec file as well as a virtual provide.
Source tarball where bundled Gnulib was found:
At least the following files look like Gnulib files:
There are most likely more Gnulib files bundled in the SRPM. I didn't bother
to list them all as it shouldn't be necessary.
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database. Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 19 development cycle.
Changing version to '19'.
(As we did not run this process for some time, it could affect also pre-Fedora 19 development
cycle bugs. We are very sorry. It will help us with cleanup during Fedora 19 End Of Life. Thank you.)
More information and reason for this action is here:
This is already fixed in current libtasn1 in F19
