[packaging] gnome-session-wayland-session and gnome-session-xsession should depend on gnome-shell
Last modified: 2017-11-16 18:01:12 EST
Description of problem:
gnome-session-wayland-session doesn't depend on gnome-shell
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 23 alpha iso
Steps to Reproduce:
0. boot fresh fedora 23 alpha installation
1. open root console
2. type `dnf remove gnome-session-xsession` with gnome-session-wayland-session enabled
dnf tries to remove gnome-shell, gdm and some other packages
gnome-session-wayland-session should be a fully functional replacement for gnome-session-xsession with all dependencies provided.
The situation is entirely symmetric. gnome-session-xsession has the same dependencies as gnome-session-wayland-session.

You're right. Is this an issue in dnf? or do both gnome-session-xsession and gnome-session-wayland-session have broken dependencies?
The gnome-shell Requires might upset people doing weird things like openbox+gnome-session. I wonder if we should break out /usr/share/gnome-session/sessions/ files into there own subpackages, and then make Requires: gnome-shell go on the subpackages that list org.gnome.Shell as a required component.

Oh, I totally forgot that you can install gnome-session without installing any of its subpackages. Will make a new pull request.

A patch fixing both bugs.
As I was unable to push any commit to pagure (seems broken, I cannot upload my SSH key and cannot see a way to do this without an SSH key), I'll attach a patch here.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 25 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 25. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 25 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.
