Description Kalev Lember 2013-06-23 10:23:51 EDT
libvirt-client and libvirt-daemon packages include large ChangeLog.gz files, together accounting for 2.8 MB. Please drop these from the package; the NEWS files are more than enough to give an overview what's changed.

Also, would be nice to only ship one copy of the 778K NEWS file, instead of duplicating it between libvirt-client / libvirt-daemon / libvirt-python. (But please don't .gz compress it, it would only reduce the effectiveness of the .xz compression that iso images use.)

The F19 Desktop media is over size and would be great to have this fixed.

The F19 release is out and we ended up doing a number of other cuts. Would still be nice to fix this for F20.
Comment 2 Fedora End Of Life 2013-09-16 10:14:35 EDT
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 20 development cycle.
Changing version to '20'.
