Package should require yelp for its help
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:06 EST
This package uses yelp for its help. Therefore, it should require package yelp for its operation.
[Filed by a script; forgive him if he made a mistake for once.]
All of these bug reports are (most likely) wrong. The package should NOT
require yelp. We went through effort to ensure that yelp is not a requirement
for the desktop.
You should ask yourself: will the package fail to work if yelp is not installed?
If not, do not require yelp.
If you have already committed this fix blindly, I ask that you consider undoing
it so derivative projects can continue using your package without help if they
We have added yelp to the default install via comps so that all installs get
yelp by default unless they specifically ask for it to be removed. We should
honor that. Please undo your changes if you have made them and/or mark this bug
I agree with caillon. If RPM supported the Debian concepts of "suggested" or
"recommended" packages, we could mention yelp in that context. But it should
not be a requirement.
