Comment 1 Michel Lind 2013-03-01 01:43:40 UTC
Hi Pierre-Yves,

Apologies for the late reply. Would adding a python-sphinx-latex virtual subpackage, that pull in those dependencies, be sufficient? Let me know.

I'd rather not pull in all these when not needed for the basic workflow of generating HTML docs.

Comment 2 Pierre-YvesChibon 2013-04-29 14:40:18 UTC
The sub-package is fine for me, on the other side, the dependencies are not that big either so it wouldn't blow up the dependency chain, but it's your call :)


Comment 3 Pierre-YvesChibon 2013-05-02 13:04:35 UTC
I just had to reinstall them on a system where I was facing the problem, so for reference:
  texlive-framed, texlive-threeparttable, texlive-titlesec and texlive-wrapfig
adds up to:
Total download size: 105 k
Installed size: 156 k

Comment 4 Fedora End Of Life 2013-12-21 09:34:21 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 18 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 18. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '18'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 18's end of life.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be 
able to fix it before Fedora 18 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior to Fedora 18's end of life.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

Comment 5 Fedora End Of Life 2014-02-05 13:26:31 UTC
Fedora 18 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2014-01-14. Fedora 18 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 23 development cycle.
Changing version to '23'.

(As we did not run this process for some time, it could affect also pre-Fedora 23 development
cycle bugs. We are very sorry. It will help us with cleanup during Fedora 23 End Of Life. Thank you.)
