Description Jonathan Kamens 2005-12-01 20:27:17 UTC
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?

Comment 1 Mike A. Harris 2005-12-02 03:38:33 UTC
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.

*** Bug 176757 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***

Comment 3 Mike A. Harris 2006-02-01 01:40:48 UTC
X11R7 has provided the documentation tarballs, now all we need to do is build
packages for rawhide.  Adding to FC5Blocker tracker.

Comment 4 Mike A. Harris 2006-02-08 20:25:29 UTC
Package inclusion approvals:

Technical lead (notting):  approved
    <mharris> I've got quite a bit of stuff to do, and 2 things were making a
              couple other new packages (X documentation and the utils that
              build it)
    <mharris> https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=174738
    <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).

Comment 5 Mike A. Harris 2006-07-24 12:39:11 UTC
Packages submitted for Fedora Core review:

Bug #199925
Bug #199927

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

Comment 6 Mike A. Harris 2006-07-25 02:02:34 UTC
The packages have now been approved and built in rawhide as 'noarch'.
