Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 820973
Help -> Content function is broken
Last modified: 2013-01-19 19:15:41 EST
Description of problem:
When I press F1 (or Help -> Content) firefox is opened but the page with help is not found.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run transmitssion
2. press f1
Help isn't shown
Help is shown
Because simple-scan is installed by default (when installing from DVD), I
propose this bug as final blocker per criterion:
"Menu sanity - the following criteria refer to both a live image and default
installed system, and to all release-blocking desktops: "
- All applications listed under the Applications menu or category must
withstand a basic functionality test and not crash after a few minutes of
normal use. They must also have working Help and Help -> About menu items
Discussed at 2012-05-11 blocker review meeting: http://meetbot.fedoraproject.org/fedora-bugzappers/2012-05-11/f17-final-blocker-review-meeting-5.2012-05-11-17.04.html . Accepted as a blocker per criterion cited above.

I'm not sure there is anything we can do here, this isn't a bug in the transmission-gtk app, the URL is a 404 because upstream hasn't generated help files for the gtk client since the 2.3x series (see: http://www.transmissionbt.com/help/gtk/ ).
Technically, the items work, and if upstream were to add documentation at the appropriate subdir for 2.5x, the Help->Content would immediately function without need for a package update.
I'd ask that we reconsider this as a NTH but not a blocker.
Discussed during the 2012-05-14 mini blocker review. With the new information from c#2, transmission is working as intended but the issue is a delay in documentation from upstream.
As the software is working as intended, this is no longer considered a blocker for Fedora 17 final.
