Description Dave Malcolm 2007-04-26 19:37:31 EDT
I'm trying to use gedit to edit a specfile, but everything is black-and-white

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Open a specfile in gedit (extension is ".spec", though nautilus reports its
mimetype as "text/plain")
2.  click menu: Edit->Preferences
3.  click "Syntax Highlighting" tab, and review "Highlight mode" combo

Actual results:
(i) Specfile appears without syntax highlighting
(ii) Highlight Mode combo doesn't contain "RPM Specfile" as an option

Expected results:
(i) Specfile should be syntax highlighted
(ii) Highlight Mode combo should contain "RPM Specfile" as an option

This bug is fixed in Fedora 7, older releases are not supported anymore. Please
upgrade, unless you already did.
