Description Michael Catanzaro 2016-09-14 05:01:05 UTC
The webkitgtk package will be removed from rawhide after Fedora 26 is branched due to the high number of unfixed security vulnerabilities. You must remove this dependency or your package will not be present in Fedora 27.

Please refer to [1] for a FAQ on this matter and be advised that for some packages this may require a substantial amount of work.

Note: if ghc-webkit is a bindings package specifically intended to provide WebKit1 or GTK+ 2 bindings, then it can safely be retired.

Comment 1 Fedora End Of Life 2017-02-28 10:17:16 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 26 development cycle.
Changing version to '26'.

Comment 2 Jens Petersen 2017-08-18 06:55:56 UTC
$ fedpkg retire "webkitgtk was dropped from f27+ (#1375825)"
/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/fedora/client/bodhi.py:48: DeprecationWarning: fedora.client.bodhi has been deprecated. Please use bodhi.client.bindings instead.

Could not execute retire: Un-expected openid provider asked: https://admin.fedoraproject.org/pkgdb/

Comment 3 Jens Petersen 2017-11-15 05:31:43 UTC
