Description Miroslav Lichvar 2007-02-01 13:56:58 UTC
Description of problem:

Remove termcap, it's an obsolete system for describing terminal capabilities.
Use ncurses with terminfo everywhere.

Comment 1 Penelope Fudd 2007-02-06 06:33:22 UTC
Vim still uses it.

Comment 2 Miroslav Lichvar 2007-02-06 08:28:48 UTC
This is only about devel branch, vim is linked with ncurses there.

Comment 3 Jesse Keating 2007-03-15 14:41:59 UTC
Looks like there are still some open bugs on this, we should complete this
before the feature freeze.  What is the overall status?

Comment 4 Miroslav Lichvar 2007-03-15 14:59:48 UTC
There are only few buildrequires left and one libtermcap-devel requirement in
R-devel package.

Comment 5 Miroslav Lichvar 2007-12-12 17:54:32 UTC
termcap and libtermcap packages are now retired.
