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.

I have e-mailed email@example.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.
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.

I tried looking for doxygen in the products list, and I didn't see it on the
list. I didn't
never mind, I found out that "doxygen" was in a different product (Fedora Core,
not Fedora Extras)
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.
FYI, doxygen-1.4.6 has been released.
The .spec files and the `make rpm' command I made seem to be working great on 1.4.6.
