Description Denis Leroy 2007-07-09 03:05:10 EDT

With the now merged core and extras, for F-8 we should consider folding
gnome-python2-gda back into gnome-python2-extras where it belongs :-)

I'd be happy to act as gnome-python2-extras co-maintainer if that can help.

Comment 1 Matthew Barnes 2007-07-14 18:46:34 EDT
I'm all for the idea of merging it back in but I'm confused about the current
gnome-python2-gda package.  The gnome-python2-extras package in Rawhide would
require libgda version 2.99.6 (according to its configure.ac).  The Fedora
package, however, requires the compat-libgda package which only provides libgda
1.2.4.  And I don't even see a libgda version in Fedora beyond 1.9.100.

What's going on here?
Comment 2 Denis Leroy 2007-07-16 05:50:09 EDT
Well my understanding is that we're moving to libgda 3.0 for F-8. The current
version in CVS is 3.0.1. My other main motivation is to prepare for the upcoming
glom 1.6 stable tree that needs libgda 3 (and a whole bunch of deps including

gnome-python2-extras 2.14.x still requires libgda 1.2.x, currently provided by
compat-libgda 1.2.4.

What i would like to do is EOL compat-libgda completely and move everything to
libgda 3.0.x. This requires the following changes:

- move gnome-python2-extras to 2.19.1
- move glom to 1.5.2 (I own that)
- move libgdamm to 2.9.7 (I co-own that)
- gnumeric is already patched to support libgda 3 (CCing Hans)
- libgmomedb is already at 3.0 in CVS (Hans also owns that)

Did I miss any other deps ? Do you see any issues with moving
gnome-python2-extras to 2.19.1 ?

Correct, actually rawhide is already at libgda and libgnomedb 3.0.x

> - gnumeric is already patched to support libgda 3 (CCing Hans)

Correct, rawhide has a patched version of gnumeric which uses libgda3, according
to one reporter, with this version the gnumeric database access functions
actually work :)

> - libgmomedb is already at 3.0 in CVS (Hans also owns that)

Correct, and 3.0 is in rawhide too.

If you want I can push libgda libgnomedb 3.0.x + a matching gnumeric to F-7
updates too.
Comment 4 Denis Leroy 2007-07-16 06:15:10 EDT

I'd wait until we have a chance to test everything thoroughly.
gnome-python2-extras checks for libgda-3.0.pc, so in theory should just compile
fine with libgda-3.0, but I wouldn't be surprised if things needed a patch or
two to make glom work correctly...

I'm having problems with my Rawhide VMware VM (crashes the host kernel :-( ), so
i'm having trouble testing this at the moment...
Comment 5 Matthew Barnes 2007-07-16 10:22:58 EDT

Okay I have the gda stuff packaged into gnome-python2-extras-2.19.1-2.fc8.

I introduced two new subpackages:

   gnome-python2-gda          Contains the shared library
   gnome-python2-gda-devel    Contains the header and pkgconfig files

I also added:

   Obsoletes: gnome-python2-gda <= 2.14.3-1
   Obsoletes: gnome-python2-gda-devel <= 2.14.3-1

Look right?
Comment 6 Denis Leroy 2007-07-16 10:38:40 EDT
Looks good, the merge with the spec file from the gnome-python2-gda should have
been straightforward.

This will cause temporary dependency breakage until I get libgdamm and glom
fixed, but i guess that's ok with rawhide.
Comment 7 Warren Togami 2007-07-24 16:07:30 EDT
gnome-python2-gda confirmed removed from F8.
Comment 8 Matthew Barnes 2007-08-21 18:49:33 EDT
Closing this.  gnome-python2-gda has been merged back into gnome-python2-extras.
