Ticket #174 (closed defect: fixed)
Please make the no-bundled-libraries exception requirements more clear
|Reported by:||tmraz||Owned by:|
The text of this section of the No_Bundled_Libraries guideline is not clear in case of the already granted wildcard exceptions for copylibs such as gnulib. The text here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:No_Bundled_Libraries#Requirement_if_you_bundle seems to require resolved FPC ticket to be linked from the .spec file which bundles such copylib. But that would effectively mean opening a FPC ticket for each such package or at least finding a ticket that was the original reason for the wildcard exception.
Also from the table of already granted exceptions it is not quite clear whether mentioning the version in the Provides: bundled(gnulib) is required or not because some of the exceptions in the table explicitly mention version and others do not.
