This sounds interesting. For elfutils-debuginfod-client we really only
support http(s):// and file:// so replacing our dependency from full
libcurl to libcurl-minimal seems a good idea (assuming those 3
protocols are in libcurl-minimal). Please let us know what we should
do/test to see if this works as intended.
I think that no changes are needed in the elfutils-debuginfod-client package
for now. libcurl-minimal provides libcurl, so you should be able to simply
swap the packages and use libcurl-minimal with elfutils-debuginfod-client:
# yum install --allowerasing libcurl-minimal
Actually, putting a strict requirement on libcurl-minimal to any package
would be counterproductive because it would prevent users from "upgrading"
We would rather need it the other way around -- explicitly tag the packages
that would *not* work properly with libcurl-minimal for some reason.
