Default missing gnome-keyring-devel

Hi

This is a dependency of deja-dup and seems to have silently obsoleted.
Changelog shows https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=771299 as a
pointer but it is unclear to me what am I supposed to do?

Hi,
it was renamed to libgnome-keyring-devel, a note in the gnome-keyring
ChangeLog would work, as it was not obvious for me too.
Bye,
Milan

"Renamed"? If so, it would be just another example why our Package Renaming
Process is flawed and only adds tiresome bureaucracy for those who follow it.

This new package was introduced as a _conflicting_ package with a normal
review request and without following:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Package_Renaming_Process


| https://bugzilla.redhat.com/549709
| New: Review Request: libgnome-keyring - Framework for managing passwords and other secrets
|
| http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/rpminfo?rpmID=1754659
| Name libgnome-keyring-devel
| Conflicts gnome-keyring-devel < 2.29.4

There's no renaming going on here, really. A package was split
(gnome-keyring calved libgnome-keyring as a separate module), and as a
consequence, gnome-keyring-devel became libgnome-keyring-devel. We could
have probably handled the transition better by adding a temporary
provides. Too late now.

And / or announcing the change so people are aware of a change.

Hi,
I'm sorry for a confusion, it wasn't meant like real "rename of a
package", I did not know internals for the change, for me it was
"renamed", but as Matthias explained, it was not a package rename.
Bye,
Milan

No problem, but doesn't change much with regard to my opinion.

_Replacing_ existing packages is also covered by the packaging
guidelines,

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:Guidelines#Renaming.2FReplacing_Existing _Packages

including an explanation how to handle the "Obsoletes" and "Provides".
Even the case when to add only "Obsoletes" is commented on.
