Description of problem:
the current packages for EPIC come with scripts built into the binary and source
RPM distributions. The original EPIC packages at epicsol.org don't have the
spitfire script built in... the redhat packages should not, either. Installed
systemwide, users have a hard time bypassing the "built-in" scripts. If users
wanted built-in scripts, they'd use BitchX. EPIC should be distributed without
more than the default scripts, and users/admins can install any additional
scripts they want on their own.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -i epic-1.0.1-4.i386.rpm
2. ls /usr/share/epic/script/sf*
Actual Results: additional scripts "built-in"
Expected Results: additional scripts should not be "built-in"
this is with all EPIC rpm packages I've looked at, not just 1.0.1-4, just that
this is the one I'm trying to use and having trouble with (i.e. the 1.0.1-7
release in the rawhide tree should probably be repaired, too).
The script is just included as a convenience and isn't turned on by default.
This is perfectly reasonable. If you're wanting to use a newer version,
anything in ~/.epic will get loaded before the ones in the global scripts dir.
