Description Matthias Clasen 2005-09-23 03:02:07 UTC
The plan is to move xscreensaver to extras when gnome-screensaver lands in

Comment 1 Matthias Clasen 2005-10-22 13:57:44 UTC
Has this happened by now, ray ?

Comment 2 Ray Strode [halfline] 2005-10-23 02:30:35 UTC
No not yet.

Jamie, if we moved xscreensaver to Fedora Extras would you be interested in
maintaining it?

Comment 3 Jamie Zawinski 2005-10-23 11:37:22 UTC
What do you mean by "maintaining" it?

And -- I'm almost afraid to ask this -- but what the fuck is "gnome-screensaver"?  By which I mean, 
why is it anything other than "a series of patches to xscreensaver mailed to jwz"?  

And why has nobody ever so much as *mentioned* it to me until I saw the reference in this bug report?

And is there any chance in the world that whoever the author of this thing is has read and understood ?

This is me filled with something other than warm fuzzy feelings.

Comment 4 Ray Strode [halfline] 2005-10-24 13:20:56 UTC
Hi Jamie,

I sent you and email with some details and answers to your questions.

Comment 6 Ralph Loader 2006-01-15 04:28:38 UTC
See bug 177831 for IMHO take on this.

Comment 7 Ray Strode [halfline] 2006-02-27 20:25:19 UTC

So this isn't going to happen by release.  We'll have to figure it out for FC6.

Comment 8 Mamoru TASAKA 2006-05-30 06:55:20 UTC
Ray and me agreed that I will take over xscreensaver maintainership.

I released xscreensaver-5.00-1.fc6 in FE-devel and now xscreensaver-4.24-2 can
be removed from FC-devel. See bug 189268 (now closed as CLOSED NEXTRELEASE)

Comment 9 Mamoru TASAKA 2006-05-31 08:11:31 UTC
xscreensaver is now removed from FC-devel from 2006-05031 rawhide.

Now this bug can be closed.
