Ok... I am not very happy with that since I fear it will break users
expectations, however it may also help shape users expectations that
static libs are in separate packages. Testing local build right now and
building it in koji as soon as possible.

If you like. This is something which is working on or more precisely known 
where it should, but opening a bug is not that problematic. There was a 
bug opened because paw wasn't working 
Should I reopen that bug, or open a new one?

As a side note I didn't found a bug opened in debian, although this is 
where it would currently make much more sense.

A more detailed explanation is there, for those who want to know more:

If somebody is willing to work on that that would be incredible, but I
am not very confident it is gonna happen ;-).
