Default Packages with libtool archives

Hi

Just a find on my Fedora 15 system for .la files, results in the
following. Do we run any routine tests for things like this? is AutoQA
meant to improve packaging?

I sense a misunderstanding. Though it's right, in general *.la's should
not be shipped, there is no rule which is strictly prohibiting shipping
*.la's, because there are situations when *.la's can not be avoided to
be shipped.

I.e. blindly rejecting packages which carry *.la's would be wrong.

Run-time and/or build-time [inter-]dependencies on .la files. You can find
several threads in Fedora-land, not limited to that one ->

*.la's, because there are situations when *.la's can not be avoided to

A *.la file can specify linker flags, which libtool adds automatically to
the link. An application might rely on this behavior.





This is frequently the case with static library. Although I can't
immediately think of a use case for shared libraries, I would expect that
there might be some.
