Description of problem:
Rendering RMarkdown documents fails due to missing https support in pandoc
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Create a new revealjs presentation (e.g. the example in https://github.com/rstudio/revealjs) and try to render it by running
R -e 'rmarkdown::render("example.Rmd")'
Steps to Reproduce:
Get the following error message:
pandoc: Could not fetch https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Ubuntu:300,700,300italic,700italic
user error (https not supported)
Error: pandoc document conversion failed with error 67
Rendering the Rmarkdown to html should (as it does if using e.g. pandoc included with RStudio)
It seems that https support is explicitly disabled in the pandoc SRPM for Fedora. Fixing the problem is thus trivial, simply remove
cabal-tweak-flag https False
in %prep step
Thanks for the report
This should get fixed first in pandoc-1.19.1-3.fc28
- thanks to the great packaging efforts of qulogic.

This message is a reminder that Fedora 27 is nearing its end of life.
On 2018-Nov-30 Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for
Fedora 27. 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that are no longer maintained.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' of '27'.
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 27 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 27 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2018-11-30. Fedora 27 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no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further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.
