Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 319321
eclipse-egit requires git... requires emacs-common = 80 extra megabytes
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:17 EST
Description of problem:
eclipse-egit requires git, git requires all git-* and *-git packages and one
of them is emacs-git. emacs-git in turn requires emacs-common, which eats more
than 80 megabytes.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install eclipse-egit
dependencies end up requiring emacs-common (>80 megabytes most users don't
emacs stuff should not be installed.
Ray Strode has suggested that maybe eclipse-egit should require git-core, so
I'm filling this here (not against git). I'm not certain which is the best
solution, so I leave it up to you to decide :-)
Hi, thanks for the bug report. I changed the requirement from git to git-core.
