16:34:41 <abadger1999> Okay, I'm +1 for tibbs|h's proposal -- This proposal with removal of renaming/exception.
16:35:05 <tibbs|h> That boils down to "must build PIC".
16:35:08 <limburgher> +1 from me for same.
16:35:16 <rdieter> +1
16:35:17 <smootherfrogz> same thing, +1
16:35:39 <tibbs|h> And we can dispense with this document entirely and just say that in the "Packaging Static Libraries" section of the guidelines.
16:35:51 <tibbs|h> +1
16:36:32 <abadger1999> <nod>
16:36:36 <limburgher> Yup.
16:37:10 <abadger1999> That's five. racor, care to vote too?
16:37:13 <racor> +1
16:37:48 <tibbs|h> It may be nice to have some info on how to double-check that things are properly built. I don't even have i386 around any longer so I'm not sure how to check.
16:39:17 <abadger1999> Yeah.. tibbs, do you want to take redrafting that as the changes to the static Guidelines + a page for rationale/how to check if we can figure it out?
16:39:48 <tibbs|h> Sure.
tibbs is polishing the guideline. When done we'll submit to FESCo for ratification.
