Description Ville Skyttä 2007-12-16 11:54:30 UTC

Portecle is a user friendly GUI application for creating, managing and
examining keystores, keys, certificates, certificate requests,
certificate revocation lists and more.

F9+ only because bouncycastle >= 1.38 is needed.  rpmlint is silent.

Comment 1 Parag AN(पराग) 2008-01-10 11:08:38 UTC
Should add gtk-update-icon-cache scriptlet

Any reason for not adding doc directory to %doc?

Comment 2 Parag AN(पराग) 2008-01-10 11:09:33 UTC
any timeline for releasing bouncycastle >= 1.38?

Comment 3 Parag AN(पराग) 2008-01-10 11:10:29 UTC
(In reply to comment #2)
> any timeline for releasing bouncycastle >= 1.38?

sorry its already in rawhide. I checked on F-8 system.

Comment 4 Ville Skyttä 2008-01-10 21:18:52 UTC

* Thu Jan 10 2008 Ville Skyttä <ville.skytta at iki.fi> - 1.3-2
- Update GTK icon cache in post(un)install scriptlets (#425834).

Good catch, thanks.

Stuff in doc/ is not included as %doc because practically all of it is online
help which is already packaged inside the jar and accessible through Portecle's
"Help" menu.  I don't have that strong opinions about it though; if you think
it's better to include a second copy of the whole docs set as %doc, I can add it.

Comment 5 manuel wolfshant 2008-01-10 21:55:34 UTC
  Sometimes (many times actually) I prefer to read the docs from a browser or
using less without starting the application.
  Maybe a portecle-docs including just the docs, which can be installed by those
like me who want the docs and don't care about the space on disk would be suited
here? Plus a short polite note (in %desc for instance) "the docs are also
available in a separate package, use yum install blablah to install them". And I
would not impose any requires between the base and the -docs package, since they
would be quite independent of each other.

Comment 6 Ville Skyttä 2008-01-12 10:09:47 UTC
I don't like the -docs subpackage idea.  BTW, all the docs are available also on
the portecle.sf.net website.

I'm thinking about looking into what kind of patchwork would it be to install
the docs to /usr/share/doc/$name-$version-$release and to have the Portecle
online help system use them from there instead of from inside the jar.

Comment 7 Ville Skyttä 2008-01-13 08:44:58 UTC
I meant to say that I'll look into the patchwork mentioned in comment 6 if you
think it's necessary to get the package approved - personally I think this is
fine as is.  Let me know if you consider it a blocker; I'm leaving the package
as is until then.

Manuel, I have added your comments to my TODO list for things to look into when
I'm preparing the next upstream Portecle release.

New Package CVS Request
Package Name: portecle
Short Description: Multipurpose keystore and certificate tool
Owners: scop
Cvsextras Commits: yes

Comment 10 manuel wolfshant 2008-01-16 17:12:49 UTC
  Thanks for taking it into consideration.
  My idea was just to provide a means to see the docs even if
- you are offline (i.e. no net access, maybe on a laptop), and
- for whatever reason you do not wish to run the application itself.
  This however should not impede using the help system of the application. Your
idea about the merge (comment #6) seems perfect, if feasible without too much

Comment 11 Kevin Fenzi 2008-01-16 17:30:43 UTC
