Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1304147
tidy 0.99 is too old and deprecated - new tidy 5.0 is out
Last modified: 2016-12-20 13:24:09 EST
Description of problem:
Fedora currently ships with tidy 0.99, which is from 2008, currently deprecated old and unusable for HTML5 and current web standards.
The team behind tidy has moved on to update tidy for current technologies and to officially support HTML5. The new tidy is version 5.0 and has been released as stable.
This is a request to update the deprecated tidy package to the new 5.0 version (which has also moved away from sourceforge and its now hosted in github, they also have a new website).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Name : tidy
Arch : x86_64
Epoch : 0
Version : 0.99.0
Release : 34.20091203.fc23

tidy-5.0 is already in rawhide
Holding off doing updates for prior releases (like f23) since it is a backward-incompatible, but we can consider it.
Rebasing bug to f23
Sorry about that, I should have checked rawhide first :P
This message is a reminder that Fedora 23 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 23. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 23 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.
Fedora 23 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2016-12-20. Fedora 23 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no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further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.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
