Description Sebastian Vahl 2007-12-11 12:10:49 EST
Description of problem:
system-config-date is actual requiring yelp excplicitely. On the KDE-LiveCD 
this will pull in also xulrunner/firefox/gecko-libs and we need this space for 
other packages. So if it would be possible, remove the require on yelp, 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Comment 1 Sebastian Vahl 2008-01-09 15:56:52 EST

With upcoming kde-4.0.0 it seems we really need this space (~20 megs) to get 
essential packages on the livecd.
If you are against removing the require on yelp please also drop a comment. So 
we are aware of that.
Comment 2 Nils Philippsen 2008-01-09 19:04:39 EST
System-config-date uses yelp to display its online help (which is Docbook XML,
so the choice of programs to directly display this is rather limited). I see the
reason why you wouldn't want to drag in the mentioned dependencies of yelp, so
I've dropped the requirements on xdg-utils and yelp (the former would only have
called the latter anyway). I've kicked off a build of system-config-date-1.9.19
which checks for the presence of yelp and tells the user to install the package
if it's not found.
