Description Patrice Dumas 2007-01-16 20:25:07 UTC
Description of problem:

$ rpm -qf /usr/share/desktop-directories/

I think this directory should better be owned by redhat-menus with
a dep from kdebase on redhat-menus (gnome-menus already depends
on redhat-menus).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Comment 1 Matthias Clasen 2007-02-02 06:31:29 UTC
I think it should be owned by gnome-menus, and redhat-menus should vanish

Comment 2 Patrice Dumas 2007-02-02 11:44:34 UTC
In that case gnome-menus should be changed to have a subpackage
with less dependencies which owns the stuff needed by freedesktop
but no gnome stuff. This kind of package is needed by the desktops
or window managers (like icewm, fluxbox and so on) which uses the 
freedesktop menus and may need what is in that directory and also
some icons from the default theme, but shouldn't depend on gnome.

Comment 3 Matthias Clasen 2007-02-05 17:51:11 UTC
maybe we need to consider some kind of filesystem-freedesktop package.

Comment 4 Patrice Dumas 2007-02-05 18:31:04 UTC
Yeah, that would be a good idea, but maybe not only for
freedesktop stuff but also with desktop things like

Comment 5 Ray Strode [halfline] 2007-04-03 20:40:40 UTC
well we already have a number of xdg things in filesystem, this one probably
belongs there too.

Comment 6 Phil Knirsch 2007-04-17 12:44:00 UTC
Added all to latest filesystem package. Subpackaging filesystem this late for
FC7 isn't something i'd like to do, maybe for FC8.

Read ya, Phil
