Forget this one. It seems very useful for too many people.


>     move to extras Lynx (or elinks)
There are some objections :
m g :
- "Also, both are key parts of my "ssh in and fix an HTML-interface-
onlyuter" toolbox.  Depending on the HTML/authentication/router, one
will work and one will not.  In my experience in Freenode's #fedora, I'm
not alone in this use.

Alan Cox :
- "lynx is needed for mutt to do html reading on text logins. Its also
fairlyportant for accessibility for some users."

But Luciano Miguel Ferreira Rocha reply with :
- "I prefer to use elinks on mutt:
text/html; links -dump -dump-charset iso-8859-1 -default-mime-type
  text/html %s; copiousoutput;"

Or remove. No package in FC use lesstif or openmotif21.

Depend on the status evince :
http://www.gnome.org/projects/evince/

btw, if evince "rocks" perhaps gpdf can also be moved to extras.

Or rpmdb should not provide /usr/lib/rpmdb/i386-redhat-linux/redhat/ (97
Mo) but a tool to generate the rpmdb base (like rpmdb-fedora.spec does).

Depend if experimental gcc is _only_ an experimental compiler.
In FC3 java seems to depend on gcc4.
Jeremy Katz :
- "Unfortunately, a lot of the java stuff right now is depending on gcc4
just because that's where the work is happening.  Thus, tough call.  On
the note of the free java stuff...  gcj is really coming along
impressively in the things it can run now."
