That makes sense.
Comment 3 Eli Young 2016-12-22 20:45:14 EST
This is a result of the git-core package including git-credential-gnome-keyring. That should probably go into its own package.
Comment 4 pstodulk 2017-01-24 10:54:10 EST
Eli: yes, this is expected solution.
Comment 5 pstodulk 2017-01-24 10:57:05 EST
Just one problem is here, that this will be little incompatible change, because some people, who uses gnome-keyrings in git, will have to install manually another sub-package.
Comment 10 pstodulk 2017-09-20 07:16:54 EDT
Move this bug to RHEL-7.6, because there is another bug for change in packaging of the Git that will not be acked for testing for rhel-7.5 and make sense move these two bugs together as both of them can involve requirement for manual installation of new sub-packages by user.
