Description Ray Strode [halfline] 2005-11-08 11:56:04 EST
gnome-screensaver currently needs a migration script to convert xscreensaver's
screensaver configuration file format to gnome-screensaver's file format.

This migration script has to be run when the xscreensaver's screensavers are
installed, and adding gnome-screensaver specific migration scripts to
xscreensaver seems bad.

Instead, it would be better if gnome-screensaver just did the migration using
libxslt or something at runtime.

What about a trigger in gnome-screensaver's spec that gets run when
xscreensaver* are installed?
Comment 2 Christopher Aillon 2006-01-27 16:03:49 EST
migrate something, red pill, blue pill. whatever.
Comment 3 Ray Strode [halfline] 2006-01-31 15:59:45 EST
should work in tomorrow's rawhide.
