Description T.C. Hollingsworth 2013-08-23 04:42:26 UTC
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/tinymce/examples/media/sample.dcr (Shockwave Director)
/usr/share/tinymce/examples/media/sample.swf (Flash)
/usr/share/tinymce/jscripts/tiny_mce/plugins/media/moxieplayer.swf (Flash)


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!

Comment 1 Adam Williamson 2013-08-23 10:38:18 UTC
I think I found a magic patch which causes the media plugin to stop trying to use the moxieplayer video wrapper and just generate nice clean HTML5 <video> tags. And I'm bumping tinymce to 3.5.8 into the bargain. Maybe we can un-bundle the various things that bundle it.
