Review Request: tcl-html - HTML documentation for Tcl/Tk
Last modified: 2008-01-11 22:55:49 EST
Spec URL: http://www.kobold.org/~wart/fedora/tcl-html.spec
SRPM URL: http://www.kobold.org/~wart/fedora/tcl-html-8.4.13-10.src.rpm
HTML man pages for the Tcl/Tk script and C level APIs.
This package is being moved out of the core tcl package so that it can be made noarch, and because there are no more build-time dependencies between tcl and tcl-html.
The initial build/push of this package will need to be coordinated with the main tcl package to prevent both arch and noarch versions from appearing in the repo. Similarly, the initial release number for this package must be greater than the last release number for the current tcl-html subpackage in order for upgrades to work.

Meaning either the tcl package drops Epoch (which i prefer) or this package also
adds the Epoch, if I am not mistaken.
Is it really necessary to split it into 2 packages?
Also noted in the related bug:
It is strongly encouraged because it will:
* simplify the tcl spec file
* make the tcl src rpm smaller
* prevent needless updates to the -html package whenever tcl is rebuilt
* shorten the build time for the tcl package since the -html subpackage
won't be rebuilt
* allow the -html package to be properly tagged as 'noarch'
These are nice arguments, but many packages have documentation included in one
package. I don't want split them now.
Reopen, fix this problem for tcl-8.5.0
