Description Matthias Saou 2004-08-30 17:19:12 UTC
Description of problem:
The current fsh package contains an info file, but doesn't make the
proper install-info call upon installation.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -q --scripts fsh
Actual results:

Expected results:
/sbin/install-info %{_infodir}/fsh.info.gz %{_infodir}/dir
if [ $1 -eq 0 ]; then
    /sbin/install-info --delete %{_infodir}/fsh.info.gz %{_infodir}/dir

Additional info:

Comment 1 Matthias Saou 2004-08-30 18:24:03 UTC
Another EasyFix for the fsh package would be to replace the
non-standard Group: tag (Networking/Other) with an official one from
/usr/share/doc/rpm-4.*/GROUPS, like Applications/Internet (which is
the one openssh-clients uses) for instance.

Comment 2 David Woodhouse 2004-08-31 13:58:17 UTC
Both fixed in 1.2-4. Thanks.

Note that fsh will soon be obsoleted by OpenSSH itself. The SSHv2
protocol supports more than one shell channel over the same
connection, and opensshd has also supported it for a long time. 

The OpenSSH client has recently started to get support for it too,
allowing you to re-use the connection without any need for a wrapper
such as fsh. See the 'ControlMaster' and 'ControlPath' options in
openssh 3.9.

It does need a little improvement before it's perfectly transparent
like fsh, though.
