Description Matthias Clasen 2005-06-22 15:51:41 UTC
GTK+ 2.8 slightly changes the format in which the file chooser bookmarks are
written. When RHEL5 comes around, we might see people use their home directories
with both 2.4.x (from RHEL4) and GTK+ >= 2.8 (from RHEL5), and in order to 
prevent problems with the file chooser bookmarks in this scenario, a small
patch should be applied to the file chooser backends to make them handle the
new format.

The attached patch make the necessary changes to the gnome-vfs file chooser
backend in libgnomeui.

Comment 11 RHEL Product and Program Management 2006-09-05 19:51:36 UTC
The component this request has been filed against is not planned for inclusion
in the next update. The decision is based on weighting the priority and number
of requests for a component as well as the impact on the Red Hat Enterprise
Linux user-base: other components are considered having higher priority and the
number of changes we intend to include in update cycles is limited.

Comment 12 RHEL Product and Program Management 2006-09-05 20:03:55 UTC
Product Management has reviewed and declined this request.  You may appeal this
decision by reopening this request.
