Description Hans Ulrich Niedermann 2010-12-18 18:13:42 UTC
Description of problem:

    wings ships a user_default module in

    This module is loaded by the erl shell on every startup
    and its commands made directly available from the erl shell.

    However, user_default is probably more meant to be something
    for a user to change, not for a software package to install
    for all users.

    And what will happen when the next piece of erlang software
    decides to ship its own user_default.beam file? The load order
    will decide which module will be activated, right?

    I quite like the lm() command from wings' user_default module,
    but shipping this file by default probably is not all that
    great an idea.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. $ erl
2. 1> lm().
Actual results:


Expected results:

   ** exception error: undefined shell command lm/0

Additional info:

   We probably should think up a useful packaging policy for
   user_defaults modules.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 19 development cycle.
Changing version to '19'.

(As we did not run this process for some time, it could affect also pre-Fedora 19 development
cycle bugs. We are very sorry. It will help us with cleanup during Fedora 19 End Of Life. Thank you.)
