Description Ralf Corsepius 2005-09-08 10:10:29 UTC
Description of problem:
The octave rpm unnecessarily
"Requires: info texinfo"

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
octave-2.1.71-14.fc4

Expected results:
AFAICT, there is no need to let octave depend on info nor texinfo

Fix: Remove these two requires from the spec.

Comment 1 Quentin Spencer 2005-09-08 21:22:47 UTC
Octave does indeed require texinfo. Most of the internal help text is texinfo
formatted. See bug #101299 for an example of what happens when octave is
installed without texinfo. If texinfo implies a dependency on info, I am willing
to remove info from the dependency list, but the texinfo dependency needs to stay.
