into Tumbleweed?

Just follow the links :-)
The bug mentions the submit request. In there it says
"Request got declined, 5 months ago, Unless there is a need for static
libs (and they be put into -devel-static), they should be removed."

The package itself is developed at

You can follow on in there what is happening.

In most projects the submission to factory is not done by a bot, when

decided not to forward that request to factory for some reason.
