Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1000263
python-django-tinymce contains bundled Flash files
Last modified: 2016-12-27 16:55:24 EST
This package contains binary files that are typically excuted by the Flash
player or another similar program.
These files are not permitted in Fedora.  Everything we produce needs to
be built from source. 
The offending file(s) shipped in this package are:
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!
I'm not the developer, I've submitted an issue regarding this .
Hopefully we can get the answer from developer team.
Adam Williamson removed it from the main tinymce package and Wordpress with a simple patch to the moxieplayer JS. See bug 1000266 and https://lists.fedoraproject.org/pipermail/devel/2013-August/188229.html for details.
Any progress here?
Apologize for the delay, I had missed the message.
I've had a quick look at Adams's solution, will try to provide another package when I got enough time, hopefully within this week.
And a scrach rpmlint report:
$ rpmlint python-django-tinymce-1.5.3-1.fc20.src.rpm
python-django-tinymce.src:3: W: mixed-use-of-spaces-and-tabs (spaces: line 3, tab: line 1)
python-django-tinymce.src: W: patch-not-applied Patch0: tinymce-3.5.8-no_moxieplayer.patch
1 packages and 0 specfiles checked; 0 errors, 2 warnings.
Please ignore comment 5, as I noticed Adam Williams has removed the bundle to tinymce in python-django-tinymce-1.5.2-2:
$ rpm -qa | grep tinymce
$ rpm -ql tinymce | grep "*.swf"
$ rpm -ql python-django-tinymce | grep "*.swf"
Which means since tinymce-3.5.8 and django-tinymce-1.5.2-2,
those binaries were removed.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 22 development cycle.
Changing version to '22'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database. Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
Fedora 22 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2016-07-19. Fedora 22 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
The current package still appears to include moxieplayer:
[root@adam adamw]# dnf repoquery -l python-django-tinymce | grep swf
Failed to synchronize cache for repo 'fedora-phabricator', disabling.
Failed to synchronize cache for repo '_dnf_local', disabling.
that's on F25.
Fixed in python-django-tinymce-2.4.0-1.fc26
