Well the 1.13 series is technically "unstable", and I don't want to get into
supporting an unstable version. 1.12-3 was only released in september. I'm
reluctant to move to 1.13.
Comment 2 Hans de Goede 2005-11-25 08:55:58 EST
I would like to add a me too or +1 to this ticket, I would like to update
gnumeric in extras to 1.6 which needs libgoffice-0.1.x which needs libgsf >=
1.13.2 . Please reconcider.
Comment 3 Hans de Goede 2005-11-25 08:58:33 EST
As an alternative I might create a libgsf13 package, whot is you opinion on that?
Comment 4 Caolan McNamara 2005-11-25 09:08:57 EST
I'm not in favour of putting in a 1.13 under-development package until it's 1.14
as I don't need the pain of api changes right now for libwpd->OOo and whatever
else is lurking in the grass. A libgsf13 package sounds good
Comment 5 Hans de Goede 2005-11-26 17:41:37 EST
In the meantime I've made a special libgsf113 package for extras which can be
installed next to the core libgsf without any problems. See bug 174266 for the
extras review. I've also created a goffice package for extras, see Bug 174267
for the review.
Comment 6 Caolan McNamara 2005-12-02 15:15:18 EST
hmm, one of my more gung-ho co-workers has upgraded it anyway :-)
Comment 7 Hans de Goede 2005-12-05 07:57:35 EST

Could you add an Obsoletes libgsf113(-devel) to it so that it get rids of
libgsf113, this doesn't conflict but ldd on something linked to libgsf might get
the extra versions as that adds /usr/lib(64)/libgsf-1.13/lib to the ldpath.

I'll update goffice and gnumeric to build against the new in core package (not
set a special PKGCONFIG path and change requires).
