Looks to be mainly because the main package requires the
test binary package and the mozjs bindings. Both of these
appear to be a bit specious.

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

> Both of these appear to be a bit specious.

Yes and no, Actually we need a proxy pac provider in order to have libproxy to work, as described in http://code.google.com/p/libproxy/wiki/Features
The mains ones are mozjs or WebKit-gtk.

Now I agree that having proxy support and then using such big dependencies can be weird.

Does removing the requirement on libproxy-pac from libproxy will give you a reason to complain as the libsoup maintainer ?

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2009-09-17 21:55:55 UTC
Wouldn't the basic install just work from environment variables, and you install the xulrunner one conditional on xulrunner, the gnome one conditional on gnome, etc?

Comment 3 Matthias Clasen 2009-09-21 16:52:01 UTC
Do we need to add a proxy-pac-provider virtual provides and require that ?

On the other hand, if libproxy can offer some reduced functionality off envvars if no provider is present, then just dropping the deps would probably be fine...

That's possible, but then the main interest of libproxy disappear.
Libproxy, to deal with Proxy Automatic Configuration (PAC), must have either xulrunner or webkit.
So the other way would be to have these last to requires libproxy (that would be a  circle dependency. One requiring the other at built time, and the other requiring the first at runtime).

I think it is easier to keep the libproxy-pac requirement removed. That will move the problem to how the default set of packages is choosen during installation.

BTW, there is a 0.3.0 update ready:
There are some symbols removed, but no SO version bump.

Comment 5 Nicolas Chauvet (kwizart) 2009-11-08 17:25:10 UTC
The behaviour described in this bug was fixed in 0.2.3-12.fc12
libproxy 0.3.0 was updated in Rawhide for F-13, I will revert to 0.2.3 in cvs for F-12. (nothing from 0.3.0 was pushed in F-12).
