And I ask again, how else would you expect the package to satisfy the 
dependency in chrome for the newer libstdc++?  The package was 
explicitly created to allow chrome to run on an older system that 
doesn't have the newer libstdc++, by rights it should work with other 
programs that need a newer libstdc++ as well provided that they set 
LD_LIBRARY_PATH appropriately.  So it does, in fact, provide the stated 
dependency for the entire system, you just have to tell programs that 
need it where to find it.

Again, they are not broken, they are suitable for the systems they were 
built for, which would be current Fedora systems (which happen to have a 
newer libstdc++).

You're confusing here.  I assume you mean the package that provides the 
libstdc++ dependency which happens to have chrome in it's name but is 
not actually chrome and does not come from google or chrome.

teams should work if LD_LIBRARY_PATH is set appropriately.
