Comment 1 Jonathan Underwood 2015-08-14 13:34:43 EDT
OK, so, I see that 256 color support is provided in a separate packagerxvt-unicode-256color , and a separate binary, urxvt256c.  This is really confusing for users, and is inconsistent with 99% of the web documentation. Why don't we switch to building 256 color support by default?
Comment 2 Jonathan Underwood 2015-08-18 13:44:06 EDT
Similarly, I don't see any reason not to ship the default binary with multi language support. Shipping the four separate binaries really doesn't seem to serve much purpose? Or am I missing something?

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no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further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.
