Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 238753
Last modified: 2013-04-02 00:21:22 EDT
I think qt4 comes with a "dbus-viewer" program, it would be nice to include in
the binary RPM.
It's included as a demo app, in qt4-doc
Does that help?
Otherwise, upon checking, I see other distros (Ubuntu, in particular) package
dbus-viewer into it's own subpackage. Is that something you think may be desirable?
It may be desirable; it depends on how well the app works probably ;-) and
whether it gets ongoing maintenance. it's certainly a useful app in principle,
not just a demo. I haven't tried it though since I was too lazy to figure out
how to build it, thus I was looking for the package ;-)
I'll try it out from qt4-doc and let you know.
Trying this out, I do think it's a useful app even in its current state.
I guess before packaging it in /usr/bin you might want to ask upstream if they
intend to take patches on it or otherwise what their maintenance plans are. But
this is definitely a useful app for developers.
