Description Peter Robinson 2012-03-13 18:12:13 EDT
in particular the osinfo-pciids-convert and osinfo-usbids-convert depend on perl. It's not clear exactly what those bits do and whether they are critical.

Unfortunately tracker now depends on libosinfo which means that as totem -> grilo-plugins -> tracker means we now get perl in the live images which adds significant size

So it looks like there's two options, if the above two utils aren't critical (no man pages for them to be able to tell) they should be split out into a -perl or -utils sub package, or the libraries could be moved into a -libs sub package
Comment 1 Daniel Berrange 2012-03-14 04:46:49 EDT
We should probably just remove those two scripts. We added support to read pci.ids and usb.ids natively, so no longer need to convert them to XML first.
Comment 2 Fedora Update System 2012-03-14 07:47:42 EDT
libosinfo-0.1.0-2.fc17 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 17.
Comment 3 Adam Williamson 2012-03-14 17:56:46 EDT
Unless this causes any live image to be bigger than their intended target size, it's not a blocker. Does it?

pulls perl in so not 100% on sizes, more likely to be nice to have if it doesn't. Sorry I couldn't remember if size was a beta or final blocker
Comment 5 Adam Williamson 2012-03-14 18:38:01 EDT
size blocks beta, but only if the image is actually over target size. desktop image has a *lot* of slack below its target atm (700MB). so do most of the images, currently.

I've fixed it regardless, and I've even deleted these obsolete perl scripts in upstream codebase, so they won't reappear in future updates.

Discussed at 2012-03-16 blocker review meeting. Agreed this is rejected as a blocker as it does not actually appear to cause any currently-generated image to go over its intended size, since they all have a lot of slack, so the criterion "The network installation image, DVD image, and live images for release-blocking desktops must meet current size requirements" is not in fact violated.
