Default fish uses old xsel

The fish package is using xsel-0.9.6 [1] that is provided as an
uncompressed tar archive inside the upstream fish tarball. However the
latest xsel version is 1.2.0. Is there any reason for doing this?

Also, xsel is not a separate package in Fedora. Any reason for this?

Happy hacking,
Debarshi

It hasn't completed review yet.

For some reason that ticket is assigned, but not marked as being under
review. I don't know what's up there.

Ok.

In the meantime it looks like the tarred xsel in fish is a reason for
the FTBFS bug #440724. I tried building fish on my GCC 4.3 tainted
Fedora 8 system and it found a missing header for sigsetjmp in xsel.
Any idea how we are supposed to patch an uncompressed tar archive
shipped inside a compressed one?

1.using a private version of another piece of software is definitely a
no-no for fedora. either submit it separately, or arrange for the
existing one to be patched. and make use of the blocker bugs to notify
that one bug blocks/is blocked by another one


2. untar, patch, use. (and add a comment in the spec)

So are the fish maintainers (CC'ed) interested in taking up xsel?

Cheerio,
