Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 406791
Please upgrade F-7 to a version which knows the Encoding entry is deprecated
Last modified: 2008-05-01 05:33:31 EDT
Can you please upgrade the F-7 version of desktop=file-utils to a version which
knows the Encoding entry is deprecated, with the current version things get
confusing with reviews when the reviewer is using F-7 and the packager F-8, see
bug 398791 for example.
hmm, i'm not sure. The problem is, IIRC, the F-8 version of desktop-file-utils
is a lot more pedantic about things and may break rebuilds and such.
Maybe just patch the current version to not complain about a missing Encoding entry?

Do not error on missing encoding
Quick fix, if this looks okay to you, I will go ahead and check this into CVS
and do a build. Then all you have to do is push it.
I've tested this patch on F-7 and it looks like it works here.
sure looks fine, feel free to commit and build.
Built and ready to be pushed.
desktop-file-utils-0.12-5.fc7 has been pushed to the Fedora 7 testing repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
If you want to test the update, you can install it with
su -c 'yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update desktop-file-utils'
New problem (desktop-file-utils-0.12-5.fc7):
+ desktop-file-install --vendor=fedora --remove-category Application
missing encoding (guessed UTF-8)
warning: file contains key "Encoding", usage of this key is not recommended,
since it has been deprecated
So now it's adding a deprecated key, and turning around and complaining about it.
Closing this as F-7 is going EOL real soon now. I guess it would be best to
unpush the update from updates-testing, as that still has issues.
