Description Ben Cotton 2019-01-03 20:03:11 UTC
This is a tracking bug for Change: Remove Obsolete Scriptlets
For more details, see: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/RemoveObsoleteScriptlets

Remove scriptlets which are not needed anymore (ldconfig, gtk-update-icon-cache, etc.).

Comment 1 Ben Cotton 2019-02-19 20:30:21 UTC
According to the Fedora 30 schedule[1], today is the deadline for changes to be in a testable state. If your change is ready to be tested, please set the status to MODIFIED. If you know your change will not be ready for Fedora 30, you can set the version to rawhide and notify bcotton. For more information about this milestone, see the Changes Policy[2].

Just noticed that the mass change left dangling "Requires(post): info" and "Requires(preun): info" (or "/sbin/install-info", "ldconfig" and other variants) in place ("grep -R 'Requires(\(post\|preun\)).*\b\(info\|ldconfig\)\b' ~/.cache/rpm-specs" gives 177 matches).  It would be nice if those could be cleaned up by a proven packager as well.  Thanks!

We have reached the Code Complete (100%) milestone in the Fedora 30 development cycle. At this point, all Changes should be fully code complete and ready for testing during the beta freeze. If your Change has reached this milestone, please set the status to ON_QA. If it has not, this Change will be submitted to FESCo to evaluate the contigency plan and decide if the Change will continue in the Fedora 30 cycle.

So what is supposed to happen to /usr/share/info/dir now?

Comment 5 Tim Landscheidt 2019-06-13 13:47:38 UTC
@Jens Petersen, the Info directory is now updated by transaction file triggers in the texinfo package (cf. https://src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/texinfo/blob/master/f/texinfo.spec#_100) that run every time a file is created or deleted beneath /usr/share/info, so it is no longer necessary to run these from the package's scriptlets (as well).
