Description Christoph Wickert 2012-04-25 04:58:54 EDT
Description of problem:
In the update viewer, the "Details" field for the update description is too small to fit any of the descriptions. They have (at least) 3 lines of text: Type (security, bugfix, enhancement), issue date and the actual description. The third line is already cut off and one has to scroll but cannot enlarge the field.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start gkp-update-viewer.
Actual results:
The list of updates is huge but the description is tiny. When I maximize the window, only the list gets bigger.

Expected results:
Both the list of updates and the description field should grow on maxmize. There should be a handlebar between the two to adjust the size if necessary.

Comment 5 Fedora End Of Life 2013-07-03 18:38:35 EDT
This message is a reminder that Fedora 17 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 17. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '17'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.

Bug Reporter:  Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 17 is end of life. If you 
would still like  to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version  of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 
'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.
