#1141 Explicitly permit noarch subpackages for header-only libraries
Closed: accepted 5 months ago by tibbs. Opened 5 months ago by music.

Prohibiting noarch on the base package of a header-only library package provides the same benefits as a general prohibition, while explicitly allowing noarch in subpackages, including -devel, permits many header-only library packages to build noarch rpms in practice.

Full description and explanation in the PR: https://pagure.io/packaging-committee/pull-request/1140

This change was initially raised on the packaging mailing list.

The positives are rather minuscule but I don't see any reason not to allow this if someone really wants it, so... +1
