Christoph: you'll need to make a review request for votca-tools, as well.

You're not a Fedora packager yet, right?

I stand corrected. rpmlint of course complains if there is no explicit require
in -devel. And the explicit require is required in the package review

Hmm, Mamoru seems to have a point here. Although,
clearly states:
"Packages must not contain explicit Requires on libraries except when
absolutely necessary."
