Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 436962
Epiphany Webkit package would be great
Last modified: 2008-03-31 16:39:03 EDT
Description of problem:
With Webkit now supporting Webkit (using --with-engine=webkit in configure), it
would be great if an epiphany-webkit package could be provided in Rawhide.
Well, WebKit support is still experimental. There's still quite a bit of work
that needs to go into it before it's usable for users in general. See
http://live.gnome.org/Epiphany/WebKit/TODO for some of them.
That being said, I think we should let upstream dictate what happens here. They
* allow building both simultaneously with UI to switch backends
(see also Netscape 9), or
* remove support for one of the backends.
Requiring two different packages to account for mutually exclusive options to
configure is silly. WONTFIX for now since there isn't a resolution that really
suits this better...
