The sqlite is part of the qt47 build and runtime requirements. The qt47
packages are an almost one-to-one backpackaging of what Fedora ships.
Since we are going this route (shipping a newer qt) I wanted to allow
more consumers to use these packages, not only mythtv users. There are
several pros/cons to that:
o more users than mythtv, qt47 packages do more good to this world ;)
o more testers of these packages even outside the mythtv world
o easier upgrading since it's 99% of what Fedora ships
o (related to the last): faster response to CVEs
o too many dependencies, mythtv needs about half of them
o build time is too long
o need to backpackage stuff like sqlite we don't really want to be
Given that the cons were dealt with, I like that we can now offer qt
4.7.x to EL5/EL6 users for any reasons they need it.
