Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 243378
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.]
Hmm. Will fix this momentarily. Thanks for the catch...
Built into dist-f8; and it should be fixed with the next rawhide updates. Thanks.
1. Does epiphany-extensions require help in order to function? NO.
2. Does not having yelp installed lose MAJOR functionality? NO. (Just help)
Also, this requires would belong better in epiphany, not -extensions. This
should be WONTFIX.
I deleted the build, so it will not appear in rawhide. Please revert from cvs.
Whole story is in bug 243478 which this bug depends on.
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
Yelp dependency reverted. Thanks for the catch, Chris.
