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)
