patch to install git-credentials-netrc

Compared to git-credentials-store, the git-credentials-netrc helper has the following differences:

1) credentials have to be set up manually; it doesn't piggyback on an interactive "ask password" application

2) it allows to use gpg encryption (including e.g. using gpg-agent and a smartcard for the decryption keys)

For this reason, git-credentials-netrc is a better match for headless machines than git-credentials-store.  The attached patch installs it along with other helpers.  git-credentials-gnome-keyring is a precedent of installing contrib helpers to /usr/libexec, so I'm doing the same in this patch.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 24 development cycle.
Changing version to '24'.

More information and reason for this action is here:

This seems like a good change to me.  I did have to add a BR on perl(Test) to get the build to work in rawhide.  We could avoid that and not run the tests, but I don't think there's any good reason not to add the BR and run the tests.

Install git-credentials-netrc

Updated patch with perl(Test) BR, on top of the current 2.8.1 in rawhide.
Comment 4 Todd Zullinger 2016-04-11 12:43:39 EDT
The netrc credentials helper is installed in the rawhide packages.


Thanks for the report and patch Paolo!
