Description Ville Skyttä 2006-03-12 17:34:10 UTC

Note: there are already bugs 175438 and 175473 which submit the same stuff, but they seem to have stalled mostly due to disagreements as far as I can tell.  This is the approach how I'd like to see smart packaged and shipped in Extras, and I'm willing to maintain it if reviewers think this is better.

I'd like to ask that this will at least not immediately be closed as a dupe so people can have a look.

smart changelog since 0.41-0.6 in bug 175438:
* Sun Mar 12 2006 Ville Skyttä <ville.skytta at> - 0.41-1
- Specfile rewrite.
- Replace smart-fedora-setup with a which loads configuration
  snippets from %%{_sysconfdir}/smart/distro.d, move rest of the config
  to the smart-config package.
- Fold -usermode package into -gui-gtk.
- Add dependency on -gui to ksmarttray.
- Replace empty summary/description patch with upstream one.
- Drop unnecessary provides and dependencies, add versions to deps.
- Use usermode when launching the updater UI from ksmarttray.
- Build ksmarttray with dependency tracking disabled.
- Build rpmhelper kludge for rpm < 4.4 on x86_64.
