add scim meta packages to handle language support groups better
Last modified: 2013-01-09 20:39:50 EST
Description of problem:
For F8 I am planning to add meta packages to scim to handle the scim
core package requirements for language support better. With this change
scim no longer needs to be installed by default for all users.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install Fedora as desktop
scim, scim-m17n and scim-bridge are installed by default.
scim, scim-m17n and scim-bridge not to be installed as they are
not useful without IM Engines or m17n-db input maps.

This seems mostly OK, however I'm curious about conditionalizing on
xorg-x11-server-Xorg. Does scim not work via ssh x11 forwarding, or is it
directly tied to the X server handling the windows?
Either way, comps is open to all for writing, you can apply the patch at any
time you see fit.

No it works over ssh too. The condition on xorg-x11-server-Xorg is "historical"
I think, copied from other comps entries when it was added.
What would be a better "dependency" so that it would not be installed
by default on a server or minimal install? Maybe gtk2?
(Otherwise if it is superfluous we could also drop those conditions I suppose.)
I just saw a bunch of scim comps checkins, does that resolve this bug?
Yes, that's right.
I left the conditionals at xorg-x11-server-Xorg for now since that
is what we have been using for now. Perhaps we can improve that later.
