Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 174738
What happened to X11 dev docs
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:18 EST
The X11 dev docs, e.g., the roff Xaw and Xt manuals, seem to have
disappeared. Am I just missing the RPM they're packaged in, or are they
really gone? Any chance of getting them back?
X.Org has not yet provided the documentation in modular X, so there are no
packages yet. Once X.Org provides documentation tarballs that build, we
will probably add them to Fedora however.

<notting> 174738 seems fine
Installer team (jeremy): rejected
(Discussion with jeremy to find out wether this affected the installer
did not yield any problems it would cause for the installer, however
it was rejected due to the upstream documentation being a monolithic
tarball instead of being individual documentation in each package
which it is documenting (Xaw/Xt/proto headers etc.)
Release engineering (jkeating): awaiting approvals of notting/jeremy
Status for FC5: X documentation rejected for FC5 by installer team due
to unsatisfactory upstream tarball packaging (although it isn't clear
how this affects the installer).
Packages submitted for Fedora Core review:
Once they have been approved, the packages will be checked into CVS and
built for rawhide. For those looking to download them via FTP, please
note that the new packages are 'noarch' now as they are in separate
The packages have now been approved and built in rawhide as 'noarch'.
