gonvert installs a file in /usr/lib/python-2.4
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:02 EST
Description of problem:
gonvert seems to be the only FE package which still installs anything in
As we're not shipping python-2.4 in F7/Rawhide, this should be changed to
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Ping. (This has been open for 2 months without a reply or fix.)
I noticed this problem today when I installed gonvert. I took a look at the
spec file to see about fixing it. In the process, I updated gonvert to the
latest upstream version, 0.2.19, and made some other changes to the package.
See http://fedorapeople.org/~tmz/gonvert/ for a patch to the spec file as well
as mock builds for F-7 and devel.
Hopefully some of these changes will be useful. At the least, the subject of
this bug should be fixed. It results in a dangling
/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/share/gonvert/ directory when the package is
removed or upgraded. I don't see any reason why the glade file should be
installed in /usr/lib/python2.x at all, whether 2.4 or 2.5.
Ping. Please acknowledge Paul. This has been open for months. I sent a
private mail to you 2 weeks ago asking about this, also with no reply. I
believe the AWOL Maintainers policy is kicking in here.
