Description Davide Cescato 2009-06-18 19:45:09 UTC
Description of problem:

Elsevier has introduced a new LaTeX document class named "elsarticle" that renders the previously used "elsart" document class obsolete. However, tetex-elsevier only provides the "elsart" document class, and not the "elsarticle" class.

The output of "rpmquery --filesbypkg tetex-elsevier" is as follows:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
tetex-elsevier-0.1.20071024-2.fc11.noarch

Expected result:
tetex-elsevier should provide the elsarticle document class; the elsart class should be kept in the package to allow old documents to compile.

*** Bug 506826 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***

Comment 2 Patrice Dumas 2009-06-18 21:23:33 UTC
Since none of the file of the new class conflicts with the old class file, I'd be in favor just to add the new styles without dropping the old (though maybe isolate the old classes documentation files in a specific subdirectory).

Comment 7 Davide Cescato 2009-06-22 10:53:22 UTC
The bug fix is good, however the log entries somehow carry a date (20081024) different from the one in the build identifier (20081007).

* Mon Jun 22 2009 Mary Ellen Foster <mefoster at gmail.com> - 0.1.20081024-2
- Better location for the elsarticle files 

* Mon Jun 22 2009 Mary Ellen Foster <mefoster at gmail.com> - 0.1.20081024-1
- Add the elsarticle class as well
