Description Harald Reindl 2012-10-19 05:17:14 EDT
* Thu Oct 18 2012 Jes Sorensen <Jes.Sorensen@redhat.com> - 3.2.5-12 - Add abrt script to retrieve /proc/mdstat output in case of crash - Resolves bz867842

you may add scripts BUT PLEASE do not "Requires: abrt"

why do people not understand that these are the things making it more and more difficult to get a tiny system - this dependency pulls other ones and the next time "btparser" adds it's own one (explicit or implicit) we are pulling it too

no i do not want arbt on any system
no i do not want a cross-dependency tree on tiny servers
yes i want LESSER dependencies

since it pulls 4 packages even on my desktop machine i am furstrated to see the road still go to a fater and fater distribution

 mdadm                         x86_64                 3.2.5-12.fc17
Installing for dependencies:
 abrt                          x86_64                 2.0.16-1.fc17
 abrt-libs                     x86_64                 2.0.16-1.fc17
 btparser                      x86_64                 0.20-1.fc17

This is already addressed in -13

Now why do people not understand that package maintainers need proper bug
reports in order to be able to fix bugs....

Comment 2 Harald Reindl 2012-10-19 05:35:29 EDT
the problem is that you need to report bugs which where intoduced while fixing things which ain't broken - another example how fedora comes more and more fat

Comment 3 Jes Sorensen 2012-10-19 05:43:28 EDT
I added the abrt feature because I have problems with incomplete bug reports
for mdadm, and I need that info in order to address the bug reports that I

This is a balance act, and it is impossible to keep everybody happy. It doesn't
mean one doesn't try.

I cannot speak for other package maintainers and why they add what they add,
you have to take that up with them.
