Comment 7 Rakesh Pandit 2009-11-28 09:58:13 UTC
give me a week .. thanks for your patience .. I will check it in few days.

Comment 8 Rakesh Pandit 2009-11-30 09:25:45 UTC

I will looking into and talking to upstream.


Comment 9 Rakesh Pandit 2009-12-01 19:57:41 UTC
As you already know https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=603346 is fixed now.

Fix is in git and I have already build up for rawhide. Which seems to be ok except I seem to see gedit crashing on rawhide. Will check with that and import to the fix to stable fedora package in few days.

Thanks for reporting and follwing up,

Okay new gedit-plugins 2.29.3 works. The problem with gedit was it did not worked with gtk2 < 2.19.0 which it is supposed to work. So, I will report upstream. Have closed gedit bug as it already has gtk2 > 2.19.0.

So, problem solved it rawhide. Will need to backport fixes in stable releases.

This message is a reminder that Fedora 12 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 12.  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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '12'.

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 12'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 12 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:
