Description of problem:
Sylpheed has supported GnuGP for signing and encrypting messages for
quite a while.  Everytime I upgrade I have to recompile this
particular app to get secure email.  It would be nice if it came with
GnuPG support included, or at least as an option or something.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. NA

Oh, and to compile with gpg support, run configure with the
--enable-gpgme option.  Of course, you first need gpgme installed, but
I had no problem installing it with generally available rpms, and
there were no other dependencies.

Comment 2 Akira TAGOH 2004-06-01 00:56:22 UTC
Yes, I know. I have gotten such request before, but I couldn't build
the gpgme enabled sylpheed so that gpgme isn't in FC, but in Extras.
so people who wants gpgme support can do rebuild it from srpm with
rpmbuild --define "_with_gpgme 1" sylpheed-blahblahblah.src.rpm to get
gpgme enabled.
Why gpgme can't be included to FC, actually there are some packages
which is required gpgme. some of them requires the unstable version,
and others works with stable version and even unstable version. so if
we move gpgme to FC, unstable version looks better. BUT unstable
version is alpha release and we can't include it to FC. so a build
option for srpm was just added. it was background.
