Description Matěj Cepl 2008-06-09 03:45:44 EDT
Description of problem:
In Fedora 7 discovery of sftp services accross the network just worked. In
F{8,9,Rawhide} it doesn't. After pulling all my hair, I found
http://fedoraforum.org/forum/showthread.php?p=935206 and yes

cp /usr/share/doc/avahi-*/sftp-ssh.service /etc/avahi/services/ 

just made it work.

The only mentioning of this regression (it is one, if I every saw one) is:

* Fr Sep 07 2007 Lennart Poettering <lpoetter@redhat.com> - 0.6.21-4
- Ship ssh static service file by default, don't ship ssh-sftp by default
- resolves: #269741: split off avahi-ui-tools package
- resolves: #253734: add missing dependency on avahi-glib-devel to avahi-ui-devel

which doesn't explain anything -- two bugs mentioned has nothing to do IMHO with
ssh-sftp service. Is there some particular reason for breaking this functionality?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Go to "network:///" in Nautilus
Actual results:
No SFTP volumes available.

Expected results:
They should be visible and accessible.
Comment 1 Lennart Poettering 2008-12-13 05:56:11 EST
We decided to remove the sftp service by default because it setting up and configuring file shares is an administrator's job. Previously every single machine would show up with its sftp share in the Nautilus browsing window which made the whole idea of browsing pointless since almost no share registered would actually be useful and especially in larger networks the window wuld be very very crowded and hiding the real file shares.
