Description apf 2006-07-16 23:26:39 UTC
Description of problem: Mozilla has been deprecated and will not appear in future Cores. This will leave the core install disks without a specific website development tool. Formerly, Mozilla's Composer provided this functionality. I would suggest Bluefish be moved from the repositories to the Core disks. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Move Bluefish from "extras" repository onto core installation disks. Additional info: Webpage creation is a skill that even low-end users are capable of. It is not a niche activity, so Bluefish should be moved to Core disks, especially if Mozilla is removed from the installation. Using VI or Emacs is of course, an option for website creation but is not the best-solution for low-end users and lack the specialist features of Bluefish. Thanks, David LS. Hobart, TAS

Thank you for the report. Mozilla suite will be in the future replaced by Seamonkey which is the same code base as the suite. Seamonkey is available as part of Fedora Extras along with Bluefish. Since several other programs like Yelp and Devhelp using Mozilla suite as their browser engine, We need to either build all these applications against Firefox or use XULRunner which is apparently not very mature yet More information at https://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-maintainers/2006-July/msg00364.html

Hello Rahul, Thanks for the response. I have looked at Seamonkey. So will it be moved from Extras to the core disks? I think it is worthy of it. Although lacking in some major features like syntax highlighting, the Composer module does show promise. Thanks, D. Le Sage HOBART, TAS

We dont plan to move Seamonkey into Fedora Core as we already have a many browsers and mail clients and dont want to duplicate components. If composer can be split out as a package. it might be a good candidate for core or Nvu might be included.

This looks more like a comps change request. Moving to distribution.

In a post Core/Extras split world, does this matter?
Comment 6 Bill Nottingham 2008-05-12 21:14:14 UTC
Well, other than what may be in kdenetwork, we don't ship a specific HTML editor; that being said, website development is probably left to a separate spin that has TurboGears, RubyOnRails, PHP, and so on.
