Description: This package contains the Gtk user interface component for libyui

This package depends on libyui which has it's review request in #959926 and also waits for a sponsor, so testing with koji was not possible at the moment.

Fedora Account System Username: besser82


This is one my first packages I want to contribute to Fedora, so I need a sponsor. I am in good contact to upstream, esp. to the lead-maintainer and have direct-push access to the libyui github-repos, too.

Updated to V2.43.2

You can find SPEC/SRPM here: http://besser82.fedorapeople.org/pkg/libyui-gtk/

Or clone my git-repo from besser82@fedorapeople.org:public_git/libyui.git and checkout the libyui-gtk branch.

As a hint, the "Spec URL:" and "SRPM URL:" fields in bugzilla review tickets are found and parsed by the "fedora-review" tool. Keeping them up-to-date makes it possible for reviewers to run fedora-review and have the tool download the latest src.rpm.

Will do a final review here, so please save yourself another update, ... but I've stumbled into the README being unclear:

The first sentence describes a "LGPLv2+" licensing, not "LGPLv2 or LGPLv3". The following applies:


There is no newer LGPL yet, and both the v2.1 and v3 license terms are included in the COPYING* files, but well, the README says "version 2, or, at your option, any higher" which includes LGPLv3+, too:



Comment 6 Björn 'besser82' Esser 2013-05-16 14:48:21 UTC
Copyright is LGPLv2.1 and/or LGPLv3 for sure.

This contradiction is a left-over from somewhen six years ago: https://github.com/libyui/libyui-gtk/commit/233ecfe55aa2313522851ab067db2a970408264e#README

I'm currently having a pull-request filed to have this issue corrected. Next version will have fixed README, then.

As you can see COPYING* were pulled in the repo by me, obsoleting old GPLv2-COPYING: https://github.com/libyui/libyui-gtk/commit/15818caa5b2e9287312b02901698a51b46a58fec

* rpmlint says:
libyui-gtk.x86_64: W: summary-not-capitalized C gtk3 User Interface for libyui

* About %_hardened_build I'm still not convinced that a GUI framework classifies as security relevant. Here's an interesting thread:


If it will become mandatory, it will likely be added to %configure, for example.

* Not related to this package, but the libyui %doc examples, which I've tried for some basic testing. I just discovered they apply the MIT license. Not a big issue, bug the -doc package's "License" tag isn't correct then.



* What's necessary to get "examples/ManyWidgets.cc" to compile?

* This package is

How did you try?

On F18 invoking `g++ -I/usr/include/yui -Wlyui examples/ManyWidgets.cc` will do.
