Could the webkitgtk4 subpackages be rearranged as such that a Requires: /usr/bin/jsc would pull in only a minimal dependency set, without breaking existing installations?
This message is a reminder that Fedora 21 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 21. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version'
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 21 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Tomáš, any chance to get this fixed?
I don't see any problem of doing this (apart from a lack of time to do it) and I will *try* to get it done for F24. But I need to state here that the whole stuff around JS in WebKit is everything, but not stable enough on secondary arches.
Fixed with webkitgtk4-2.11.2-2.fc24 that introduced the webkitgtk4-jsc and webkitgtk4-jsc-devel packages. Feel free to reopen this bug again if you notice some bug in packaging or other issues related to this change.
