Can you please share a pointer to this "upstream advice"?

> Split package according to upstream PACKAGING advice: gettext is split into two packages: gettext-libs and gettext-devel. gettext-libs is an LGPLv2+ package that contains libraries and runtime needed by i18n programs; gettext-devel is used only for development and building -- and shouldn't be needed by end users. Package that needs gettext should include gettext-libs in Requires and gettext-devel in BuildRequires (gettext is now a meta-package that depends on gettext-devel for transition.) Updated to latest upstream release. Patch gettext-0.17-open-args.patch dropped, already in upstream.
