Topic: librdkafka-devel lacks (static) library

Is it intended that librdkafka.a is missing in the librdkafka-devel package (just tested with librdkafka-devel-0.9.1-1.el6.remi.x86_64) or is there something missing in the rpm creation?
I can see it in the spec file … kafka.spec

Re: librdkafka-devel lacks (static) library

I don't see any reason to provide the static library version.
By Fedora Packaging Guidelines, only shared libraries are provided (with a small set of exception)

Desktop: Fedora 25 x86_64 + rpmfusion + remi-test + remi-dev
Laptop:  Fedora 26 x86_64 + remi (SCL only)
Hosting Server: CentOS 6.9 x86_64 + EPEL + remi + remi-php70
