* are you sure about the LGPLv2+ license tag? I was able to find only LGPLv2
references in the sources
* this package should obsolete the standalone gtksourceview2-sharp package
* the NEWS file can be removed from %doc as there is no real content

Comment 2 Xavier Lamien 2008-07-05 13:39:22 UTC
Correct, it's a LGPLv2.1 with a shortname LGPLv2.
was confusing with a couple of opened files from previous release gnome-sharp.

> Will this be pushed to F-9 and EL-5 soon? It's needed to update gnome-do --

The update of gnome-sharp to 2.20 (which is required for gnome-desktop-sharp to
be added to F-9) caused a huge amount of collateral damage in rawhide
necessitating rebuilding many mono apps such as f-spot, banshee, muine and
others, see the relevant threads on fedora-devel-list:

Some are still not yet rebuilding because the jump to 2.20 affects many packages
across the entire mono stack in unanticipated ways.

I think it's wise to let the dust settle in rawhide before pushing this to F-9,
gnome-do users can wait.
