Description Keith Roberts 2007-10-05 19:25:53 UTC
Feature Request:

Please could we have Midnight Commader installed by default on all bootable
media, especially the rescue CD's for all future versions of Fedora? It's not
much fun running the rescue CD using ViM :(

A choice between ViM or mc would be alot better.

Comment 1 James Antill 2007-10-24 13:47:18 UTC
 Why is this against zsh?


Comment 2 Keith Roberts 2007-10-24 15:18:05 UTC
I'm not sure how that happended James - Sorry!


Comment 3 Jindrich Novy 2007-12-03 11:43:18 UTC
These requests need to be filed against "distribution", not the package itself.

Having mc in the default installation makes sense. Reassigning.

Comment 4 Jesse Keating 2007-12-03 14:42:43 UTC
Actually, if you want MC to be in the default installation, you as the package
owner should adjust it's entry in comps.  If you make it a default of one of the
groups then it should get pulled into the various spins and installed by
default.  (I'm not so sure I agree that it should be default, but meh)

Comment 5 Bug Zapper 2008-04-04 14:00:37 UTC
Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported
during the development of Fedora 8. In order to refocus our efforts as
a project we are changing the version of this bug to '8'.

If this bug still exists in rawhide, please change the version back to
rawhide.
(If you're unable to change the bug's version, add a comment to the bug
and someone will change it for you.)

Thanks for your help and we apologize for the interruption.

The process we're following is outlined here:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/F9CleanUp

We will be following the process here:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping to ensure this
doesn't happen again.

Comment 6 Bug Zapper 2008-11-26 07:54:50 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 8 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 8.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '8'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 8's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 8 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here:

Comment 7 Keith Roberts 2008-11-27 14:40:00 UTC
Changed to Fedora version 10.

Comment 9 Bug Zapper 2009-12-18 05:59:08 UTC
Fedora 10 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-12-17. Fedora 10 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.

Comment 10 Keith Roberts 2009-12-18 11:54:59 UTC
This has now be included on the F12 DVD as package mc-4.7.0-0.4.pre2.fc12.i686.rpm

It is also installed as a package of the Base System :)

Thankyou!
