Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 131076
Please bring back xmessage

Description of problem:
Please bring back xmessage which was removed in recent xorg-x11. It is
a small and simple tool without a replacement and can be used by
mission-critical stuff like mail-notifiers.
Same might apply to xcalc; it looks nice and the "modern" replacements
like 'gcalctool' or 'kcalc' are having a strange behavior (e.g.
compare output of '1+2+-' with this on physical calculators).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
<metoo>+1 for bringing xmessage.</metoo>
xmessage is restored in 220.127.116.113-1, will be in rawhide soon.
