Description Miroslav Lichvar 2007-02-01 08:56:58 EST
Description of problem:

Remove termcap, it's an obsolete system for describing terminal capabilities.
Use ncurses with terminfo everywhere.
Comment 1 Penelope Fudd 2007-02-06 01:33:22 EST
Vim still uses it.
Comment 2 Miroslav Lichvar 2007-02-06 03:28:48 EST
This is only about devel branch, vim is linked with ncurses there.
Comment 3 Jesse Keating 2007-03-15 10:41:59 EDT
Looks like there are still some open bugs on this, we should complete this
before the feature freeze.  What is the overall status?
Comment 4 Miroslav Lichvar 2007-03-15 10:59:48 EDT
There are only few buildrequires left and one libtermcap-devel requirement in
R-devel package.
Comment 5 Miroslav Lichvar 2007-12-12 12:54:32 EST
termcap and libtermcap packages are now retired.
