Description Kevin Kofler 2012-03-18 21:38:39 UTC
Description of problem:
zenity-3.2.0-3.fc17 (which is dragged onto all spins as a dependency of Anaconda) adds a new dependency on webkitgtk3, which is 8.7 MiB xz-compressed (RPM size) + some dependencies. In particular, this made the KDE spin go oversize again (and we sure don't want webkitgtk3 on the KDE spin).

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install zenity.
Actual results:
Requires webkitgtk3.

Expected results:
Does not require webkitgtk3.

Additional info:
This dependency is used an optional zenity feature (--html and --url switches) which we never shipped before. It was added as part of an FTBFS fix, without being necessary to fix the build failure.

Comment 1 Fedora Update System 2012-03-19 13:58:17 UTC
zenity-3.2.0-4.fc17 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 17.

Comment 2 Adam Williamson 2012-03-19 21:30:32 UTC
Discussed at 2012-03-19 QA meeting, acting as a blocker review meeting - by policy we review 'indirect blockers' like this (bugs that do not directly block one of the blocker trackers, but do so through dependencies). This bug is accepted as a 'dependent blocker' of the parent #804454, as this is the chosen strategy to reduce the KDE image size. Theoretically, if this bug were not fixed but the KDE image size were reduced by other means, this status would be withdrawn.
