Can this be done without adding server-core?
I'm not aware of such method (except of adding all DNS dependencies as
Requires straight into freeipa-server package).

Because it's not server core,
it's the whole thing! Or maybe just rename it to server-common?

I'm fine with 'common'. Ticket 4058 calls for sub-package for CA too
so my
idea was to create 'core' package which will be gradually reduced
more and more.

Well, I don't like the fact that in order to install IPA server
without DNS you have to install freeipa-server-core instead of just
freeipa-server. Fedora packaging guidelines [1] state that the
metapackage should be named freeipa-server-compat, so I guess renaming
freeipa-server to freeipa-server-compat and freeipa-server-core to
freeipa-server is good enough.
I think you are misunderstanding what the guidelines say. -compat
subpackage is something that only contains Requires: and Obsoletes:, to
help to pull the right packages. It is not supposed to be a
full-featured package with content.

With Petr's patch, freeipa-server is exactly that - a metapackage with requires and obsoletes only - hence my suggestion to rename it according to the guidelines.
That's not good.

I think we are good enough with freeipa-server-dns. We have the same
situation with freeipa-server-trust-ad -- it is not required by the main
package and pulls in Samba-related bits. We also don't have any -compat
or metapackage for it.

freeipa-server-dns is fine, what is IMO not fine is that it *is* required by the main freeipa-server package, *unlike* freeipa-server-trust-ad.

We don't have a compat metapackage for freeipa-server-trust-ad, because there are no upgrade issues with it, which is what Petr is trying to solve with his patch.
So, the issue is that for installed bind+bind-dyndb-ldap combination we
need to switch to bind-pkcs11+bind-dyndb-ldap. Maybe instead of
modifying main freeipa package we could modify bind-dyndb-ldap package
to require bind-pkcs11 and corresponding bits of freeipa packages?
