Bug ID: 1161284
Summary: git dependency
QA Contact: extras-qa(a)fedoraproject.org
CC: dueno(a)redhat.com, i18n-bugs(a)lists.fedoraproject.org,
Description of problem:
gettext-devel depends on git
Mail correspondence with Daiki Ueno:
Can you please remove the git dependency for gettext-devel?
This is supposed to be a development package (mainly include files).
Since git on Fedora is very old and not updated reagularily, I tried to
remove git (to compile my own git) and to my surprise I saw that
gettext-devel depends on git.
AFAIK this is the only *-devel package which depends on git.
Actually, it _was_ needed for autopoint (a developer script, like
autoconf or automake), when we used git as a compression method of
/usr/share/gettext/archive.dir.*. Now that the default changed to
tar.xz, git shouldn't be necessary anymore.
I truly believe this is a bug. Can you please fix this?
Could you please file a bug on bugzilla.redhat.com
, so we don't forgot
to fix it on the next update?
