Request to include "tack" program with ncurses-devel package
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:15 EST
There is a test program called "tack" that comes with the ncurses source. It
allows developers to test their terminal capabilities and features. It would be
great to have this binary built and distributed with the ncurses-devel package.
tack is removed from the ncurses tree since ncurses-5.6-20070203 and is
distributed separately. It'll be best to have tack packaged separately as well.
I'll prepare a review request.
I did not realize tack had been broken out of ncurses. If that is the case,
then it does indeed make sense to package separately.
tack-1.06-1.fc8 is in devel.
