Re: static libs ... again

Is there is a middle ground in this static libs discussion?

For instance, are there technical solutions such as:

- all static libs should or perhaps must be in a -static sub-package

IMO, no point.  If a packager really wants them, put 'em in -devel.

- no -static sub-packages are allowed as BuildRequires for other FC or FE packages

In general, agreed.

- the -static packages are strictly optional so maintainers may provide them or not at their own discretion

I'd argue the general rule should be that static libs be omitted, unless there is (very) good reason to include otherwise.
