The Fedora Packaging guidelines for quite some time have actively been
discouraging static linking. Very few applications have gotten though with
static libraries. We have also push to have upstream make shared
libraries if they do not see
as an example.
yes Red Hat is upstream so its all the more reason to do the right thing.
But this is definetly something that has been on its way for awhile now.
I give a big +1 lets make it happen.
What's wrong with providing some -static subpackages for those who need them?
