curl package description has wrong protocol support
Last modified: 2013-07-02 19:24:09 EDT
Description of problem:
the curl package description is wrong, it mentions the following protocols to be
supported: "FTP, HTTP, Gopher, Telnet, and Dict"
Gopher was scrapped a long time ago, and curl now supports "FTP, FTPS, HTTP,
HTTPS, SCP, SFTP, TFTP, TELNET, DICT, LDAP, LDAPS and FILE" depending on how you
build it. I guess that perhaps you guys don't build it with the SSH protocols,
but the others should be there, aren't they?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I read this announcement, I don't use Fedora myself I am but the primary curl
Steps to Reproduce:
Daniel, I updated the curl description. Thanks for noticing!
