Description Howard Ning 2010-05-05 11:26:02 UTC
Description of problem:
After restarting or something, it always prompt to enter the password. Other software of the same kind does not behave like this. I suggest compiling it with --with-password. So it will remember the password. I have tried modification the SPEC and it is working fine.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gnubiff-2.2.13-2.fc13.x86_64

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. set up
2. restart
3. prompt to enter password

Would it be OK for you if you can rebuild the package with an 'with-password' option?

Comment 3 Fabian Affolter 2010-09-06 22:24:56 UTC
Upstream says that '--with-password-string' is recommended.  I understand that for user this can be an annoyance but better be save than sorry.  

gnubiff-2.2.13-3.fc15 has a build condition that allows users to rebuild the package with '--with-password'
