Fixed the sidebar text problem, but the right side problem may require some work
Chris, since when isn't the timezone a separate step anymore? It seems to me
that the notebook tab plus the height of the timezone tab push the dialog
boundaries too much to the bottom (before, the timezone was on a separate
firstboot page and therefore had no notebook tab). I'm a bit puzzled though, why
the dialog is so wide.
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.

Could you please reply to the previous question? If you won't reply in one
month, I will have to close this bug as INSUFFICIENT_DATA. Thank you.
Nils - looks like the date and timezone got pulled into the same module for F-9,
which is when I totally redid firstboot. Looks like something I just overlooked
in all that work. I don't think there are any problems with splitting those
back apart, though simply reusing that code entirely from s-c-date is a whole
Okay, the timezone tab has been removed from the stock Date & Time screen.
Unfortunately, the NTP tab is still there so that doesn't really solve the
screen width problem. We don't have the NTP choice anywhere else (like in
anaconda) so I guess it has to stay in firstboot for now.

This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '9'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 9 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-07-10. Fedora 9 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
