Description Peter Robinson 2008-09-19 15:30:42 UTC
libbonobo includes the following file /usr/bin/bonobo-slay which is written in perl. I'm not sure what it does and whether it can be moved out to a perl sub package or removed all together. OLPC have had issues with it as well (http://dev.laptop.org/ticket/234). Its a pity to pull in the complete perl dep chain for a single file

adding to f10target... seems like this would be something nice to fix for F10

Comment 2 Ray Strode [halfline] 2008-09-19 18:03:22 UTC
It's just a "my machine is broke, this might fix it" debugging tool.

if you want to just rm -f it in %install i'm okay with that.  The CVS acl should be open for you.

If people complain, we can add a subpackage or port it to shell.  I doubt people will complain though.

Cool, that's good news... another dep bites the dust. I can do it if now one else has time.

A perlless libbonobo is now built and waiting the push to rawhide
