Description Rex Dieter 2010-02-12 11:38:13 EST
In short, kopete-cryptography-1.3.0-kde4.4.0 uses libkeo headers that are no longer exported by kdepim.

krop in #kontact suggested : "drop the kopete-cryptography packaging"

Unfortunately, I see no alternative at the moment.
Comment 1 Kevin Kofler 2010-02-12 16:21:34 EST
Leave it as is for now (i.e. leave the previous build in), I'll look into this tomorrow.
Comment 2 Kevin Kofler 2010-02-13 06:43:55 EST
The offending kdepim commit to revert:
(and we'll need to reenable our kdepim-devel package too).

Actually, this is the 4.4 branch commit I'm reverting:
Comment 5 Kevin Kofler 2010-02-13 16:55:43 EST
Fixed in kdepim-4.4.0-4.fc1[123]. kopete-cryptography-1.3.0-16.fc13 built successfully.

thanks for taking care.

Do we have reply from upstream?
Comment 7 Kevin Kofler 2010-02-15 09:17:37 EST
Sadly, no really helpful one. :-( There were 2 suggestions:
(a) drop kopete-cryptography packaging entirely. Huh? They won't even support software in extragear anymore?!
(b) copy the libkleo headers into kopete-cryptography. This is just wrong for several reasons:
1. It's not in kopete-cryptography upstream. We'd have to patch it (also hack the CMakeLists.txt, not just add the headers).
2. Bundling the header probably also means bundling the library or we'll be doing the "build against private header, link against public copy" hack which is quite dangerous if they get out of sync.
3. Bundled libraries (or even just parts of libraries, e.g. header files) suck and violate our packaging guidelines.
So both (a) and (b) look like "no go" to me.
IMHO it's unacceptable that kdepim stops exporting an API which is used by an extragear application.
