Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1284081
Git (cli tool) incorrectly depends on gnome (libgnome-keyring)
Last modified: 2018-06-22 11:22:02 EDT
Description of problem:
simple, common cli tools (git) should not depend on bringing in gnome (in particular git rpm in RHEL7.1 depends on libgnome-keyring)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
yum install git
Steps to Reproduce:
That makes sense.
This is a result of the git-core package including git-credential-gnome-keyring. That should probably go into its own package.
Eli: yes, this is expected solution.
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.
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.
