This is another friendly reminder to all developers and package
maintainers that "XFree86-devel" and "xorg-x11-devel" will no
longer exist in Fedora Core 5.
The current rawhide monolithic xorg-x11 build has had the virtual
"Provides: XFree86-devel" removed to both find out what all packages
were still using it, and also as a heads up to developers and
package maintainers to update their packages, as this is no longer
a valid BuildRequires.
All packages which "BuildRequires: XFree86-devel" or
"BuildRequires: xorg-x11-devel" must be updated to remove this
dependency and replace it with individual BuildRequires for
each library that is needed.
When updating packages for rawhide, be sure to not use xorg-x11-devel
either, because it only exists temporarily for a week or less. Once
modular X goes into rawhide, packages depending on either of these
dependencies will need to be updated in order to build properly, so
it is best to make the change now if possible.
I'd like to thank everyone who has helped update packages so far,
as this helps to minimize the amount of work needed later.
Thanks in advance!
