Remove Requires: ceph
Last modified: 2012-09-18 16:02:07 EDT
I don't think libvirt-daemon actually requires the whole ceph package. From a quick read of the source it doesn't look like it execs any of the command-line tools. As of F18 (bug #812975) the ceph libraries and apps are packaged separately, and rpm's ELF logic will pick up the libraries as needed anyway.
The 'ceph' package itself is about 25M installed, which is rather a lot on size-constrained media like a live image.
Would it be possible to remove the explicit Requires: ceph from the spec?
Correct, we only rely on librbd.so, which RPM should automagically pull in for us, so no objection to removing the explicit 'Requires: ceph'.
Pushed a fix upstream

Remove explicit dependency on ceph RPM
The libvirt storage driver uses librbd.so for its functionality.
RPM will automatically add a dependency on the library, so there
is no need to have an explicit dependency on the ceph RPM itself.
This allows newer Fedora distros to avoid pulling in the huge
ceph RPM, in favour of just having the libraries installed
copying into Fedora shortly....
