Description T.C. Hollingsworth 2013-08-23 00:33:24 EDT
This package contains binary files that are typically excuted by the Flash
player or another similar program.

These files are not permitted in Fedora. [1]  Everything we produce needs to
be built from source. [2]

The offending file(s) shipped in this package are:
/usr/share/doc/php-simplepie/demo/for_the_demo/lucida-grande-bold.swf
/usr/share/doc/php-simplepie/demo/for_the_demo/mediaplayer.swf
/usr/share/doc/php-simplepie/demo/for_the_demo/source_files/sIFR-r245/sifr.fla
/usr/share/doc/php-simplepie/demo/for_the_demo/verdana.swf
/usr/share/doc/php-simplepie/demo/for_the_demo/yanone-kaffeesatz-bold.swf

If these files are just a fallback for something that is now supported by modern
web standards like the HTML5 <video> element, please just remove the binaries.

If removing these files would seriously cripple your application, please let me
know so we can figure out a solution.

If you have any questions, please shout.  Thanks!

any updates on this package? As of today, installing wordpress from fedora repo pulls in php-simplepie as a dependency; the flash files are still included with no change.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 22 development cycle.
Changing version to '22'.
