Description Kevin McBride 2005-11-12 14:14:49 EST
Spec Name or Url: doxygen.spec
SRPM Name or Url: http://www.planetsaphire.com/rpms/doxygen/SOURCES/1.4.5/1.4.5-4/
Description: This is an improved version of the doxygen RPMs where the doxywizard is now a seperate package from the main doxygen package, so that those who wish to install doxygen from rpm without the X window system can do so.  In addition, there are now pdf's that can be found in the new doxygen-manual package.  The new .spec files have been approved by Dimitri van Heesch, main author of doxygen.

Comment 1 José Matos 2005-11-12 14:32:55 EST
doxygen is in Fedora Core, you should propose those enhancements to  
the doxygen Core maintainer.  
> list doxygen*  
Available Packages  
doxygen.i386                             1:1.4.4-0.fc4.1      updates-released  
doxygen-debuginfo.i386                   1:1.4.4-0.fc4.1      updates-released  
doxygen-doxywizard.i386                  1:1.4.4-0.fc4.1      updates-released  
Comment 2 Kevin McBride 2005-11-12 15:49:51 EST
I have e-mailed than@redhat.com, the last known maintainer of doxygen Core,
about the enhancements.  I could not find out if that has changed over the
years, despite an exhaustive search.
Comment 3 Kevin McBride 2005-11-12 16:00:55 EST
This is all I get after obtaining the info of the latest doxygen package.  It
does not tell me the exact person that is responsible for maintaining "doxygen
Core".  I hope Than is the correct person.

[root@planetsaphire doxygen]# rpm -q --info doxygen

Summary     : A documentation system for C/C++.
Description :
Doxygen can generate an online class browser (in HTML) and/or a
reference manual (in LaTeX) from a set of documented source files. The
documentation is extracted directly from the sources. Doxygen can
also be configured to extract the code structure from undocumented
source files.
Comment 4 Rex Dieter 2005-11-12 22:17:06 EST
Just file a bugzilla report (enhancement) against doxygen.  It'll get to the
right person.

I tried looking for doxygen in the products list, and I didn't see it on the
list.  I didn't
Comment 6 Kevin McBride 2005-11-13 00:38:34 EST
never mind, I found out that "doxygen" was in a different product (Fedora Core,
not Fedora Extras)
Comment 7 Kevin McBride 2005-11-27 19:21:07 EST
Dimitri has accepted my spec file improvements, and a test of the committed
changes from 1.4.5-20051127 shows that the changes work.  My changes are now
ready for QA by RedHat for inclusion to future Fedora Core and RedHat products.
Comment 8 Stefan Hoelldampf 2005-12-31 02:45:02 EST
FYI, doxygen-1.4.6 has been released.
Comment 9 Kevin McBride 2005-12-31 03:43:03 EST
The .spec files and the `make rpm' command I made seem to be working great on 1.4.6.
