Description Mario Blättermann 2012-10-04 10:25:03 UTC

the -devel package of girara contains a static library:


Either remove it from the package (maybe by using the --no-static switch if available), or create a new -static subpackage. Leaving static libraries in the devel package is not allowed if dynamically linked libraries are present. See http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:Guidelines#Packaging_Static_Libraries_2.

Sorry for the late report, I've reviewed this package, but I wasn't aware of this issue.

Any progress here? Well, currently no package seems to need this library, but the problem persists anyway.
