I'm just pointing out this :
"""Note that if you are updating a library in a stable release (not
devel) and the package already contains *.la files, removing the *.la
files should be treated as an API/ABI change -- ie: Removing them
changes the interface that the library gives to the rest of the world
and should not be undertaken lightly."""
The intention here was for people to fix things in rawhide and be cautious
in released versions of Fedora. Breaking things in rawhide and then
patching to fix them is acceptable. The most common needed fix is likely
patching plugin loaders to use a plugin name without extension rather than
hardcoding PLUGINNAME.la in.
