Default Buildroot and missing deps (awk)



The builders had awk disappear from the default buildroots this week and that has caused some issues. On the wiki we had two lists, one was the "Exceptions" list:

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/Guidelines#Exceptions

The other was the FullExceptionsList:

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/FullExceptionList?action=recall&rev=13 (previous version)


The Exceptions list was explicit and the FullExceptionList was implicit. Unfortunately the implicit list is a moving target and as a result, caused the mistaken assumption that awk (and other binaries) would be there always. The minimal list does still exist on the Guidelines page. If you'd like something to be added or removed please send that request through FESCo as it could alter the way the binaries are made and ultimately decisions on a policy like that is up to them. The FullExceptionsList has been removed as it was misleading.

Sorry for any inconvenience this has caused.
