Description Richard P 2012-08-19 22:52:33 UTC
Description of problem:
The ability to add Python plugins to gnumeric is missing.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Was available in build 1.11.3-1; missing in 1.11.5-1

How reproducible:
Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add Python plugin as documented in /usr/share/gnome/help/gnumeric/C/extending-python.xml
2. Launch gnumeric
3. Click "Insert", "Function"
Actual results:
No new function(s) appear in list

Expected results:
Your new Python based function(s) appear in list

Additional info:
This functionality silently drops out due to missing 'BuildRequires: pygobject3-devel' in spec file.

I'll add this in the next release. Any ideas why it used to work before?

Comment 2 Richard P 2012-08-20 20:42:42 UTC
My best guess is that 1.11.3-1 built on a system, that just by coincidence, already had pygobject3-devel installed. When 1.11.5-1 built, I suspect we were not so lucky...

I noticed that I failed to report I am running the x86_64 version: gnumeric-1.11.5-1.fc17.x86_64.rpm. I confirmed that gnumeric-1.11.5-1.fc17.i686.rpm is missing the same support.

FYI: When gnumeric-1.11.3-1.fc17.x86_64.rpm built, pygobject3-devel being installed allowed the rpm to include the following files, providing the missing support:
