Question about libtirpc CNAME Change.

Hello,

In a recent upstream commit, the outdated, unsupported
AUTH_DES authentication is now compiled out by default.

This does effect the API, but does it really need a CNAME change
since it interface can be recompiled back in?

The reason I ask, change libtirpc's CNAME will require
a large number of packages (at least 40) to be
rebuild (aka rawhide chaos at its finest!)

tia,

steved.

* Steve Dickson:

Do you mean a SONAME change?

No, you shouldn't do that. Just stub out the functions so that they
always fail when called, but leave the symbols there.

Thanks,
Florian
