== Summary ==
`libcurl-minimal` and `curl-minimal` will be installed by default
instead of `libcurl` and `curl`.
The "minimal" variants provide only a subset of protocols (HTTP, HTTPS, FTP).
The full versions can be explicitly requested as `libcurl-full` and `curl-full`.

== Detailed Description ==
The `curl` package provides two sets of subpackages: `curl`+`libcurl`
`curl-minimal`+`libcurl-minimal` are compiled with various
semi-obsolete protocols and infrequently-used features disabled:
DICT, GOPHER, IMAP, LDAP, LDAPS, MQTT, NTLM, POP3, RTSP, SMB, SMTP,
SFTP, SCP, TELNET, TFTP, brotli compression, IDN2 names.
Did you discuss modularising curl itself upstream? That would be a
better idea. Then we could package up the various *.so drivers into
Also I think this whole business of minimizing Fedora is getting way
out of hand.
