Description of problem:
gnomecal --help claims that it will accept a --hidden argument
to start in iconic mode, but it seems to ignore it.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. gnomecal --hidden
Actual Results: Gnomecal starts in windowed mode
Expected Results: It should start iconified
gnomecal won't be in the next release, dropped in favor of Evolution.
gnomecal isn't actively maintained upstream.
*Extremely* poor decision. gnomecal is small, lightweight, and does
exactly what it's designed to do and nothing more. Evolution is a
slow bloated app that tries to do everything. I just want a calendar.
I already have an email client. Plus I remain unconvinced about the
design decisions and security implications behind Evolution. Sigh.
Oh well, at least gnomecal will continue to live thanks to the GPL...
Well, it isn't really our decision. We can't afford to maintain every package
dropped by upstream maintainers ourselves, and this one has been dropped; no one
is working on it. Of course it's GPL, so if someone cares they _could_ work on
it... but at the moment no one is.
