Description Sandro Mani 2012-06-20 20:00:26 EDT
Description of problem:
kde-baseapps depends on kwrite, because of an old upgrade path, the dependency however is now unnecessary (as confirmed to me once on #fedora-kde).
Moreover, it's terribly annoying having to reassign all text file associations from kwrite to kate if one prefers an editor with tabs.

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

Steps to Reproduce:
#yum erase kwrite
---> Package kwrite.x86_64 0:4.8.90-1.fc18 will be erased
--> Processing Dependency: kwrite for package: kde-baseapps-4.8.90-1.fc18.x86_64
--> Running transaction check
---> Package kde-baseapps.x86_64 0:4.8.90-1.fc18 will be erased

agreed, it's been long enough.
Comment 2 Rex Dieter 2012-06-20 22:09:19 EDT
Unsure if we should remove the dep unconditionally or just for f18+ only.

will do the former.  maintainers, chime in with your opinion if you feel otherwise.
