Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 596568
ktimetracker no longer allows time editing
Last modified: 2010-05-27 11:20:22 EDT
Description of problem:
latest update to ktimetracker removed the ability to edit a task's time by adding or subtracting time.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. ctrl-e to edit task
2. note no option to change time, as in previous versions
no way to adjust time
dialog form previous release
This issue is a regression, and has already been fixed upstream, see https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=226915
> latest update to ktimetracker
No. According to the upstream report, 4.4.0 did that. The latest update is 4.4.3.
In 4.4.0, compared to 4.3.x, sure. And you noticed it NOW? Can't be that urgent then.
> and has already been fixed upstream
In 4.5 only, because it adds strings. If we backport this to 4.4, we end up with untranslated strings. :-(
So, what do the other maintainers think? Should we backport this patch?
hmm... I guess it's been longer that I thought since I did a yum update. I don't know what motivated me to do it today, but I'm really regretting it now... I use ktimetracker daily, so it is urgent to me. I guess I'll yum remove kde* and then re-install it from the F11 DVD and then exclude it from further yum udpates until 4.5 rolls around...
F11 will reach its end of life on June 25, so 4.5 will not come to F11 at all.
right.. hmmm... well currently i'm trying to rebuild the f11 4.4. rpm with the upstream patch... if that doesn't work, it looks like f12 DVD has 4.3, so I guess i'd move to f12 and wait for 4.5..

patch to add timetracker patch to spec
For those that don't want to wait for the next release, here is a patch for the src rpm. This patch adds timetracker patch (see next attachment) to spec. Note that this doesn't restore the nice functionality from the previous release, it simply adds a field to modify the time by adding/subtracting minutes. You have to do the math yourself once you get into hours...
