Thanks for the patch, but it's not what we need in sugar-jhbuild. Since
we build Read from mainline master, the dependencies need to match what
Read depends on _now_, not at the time of release of the respective
I couldn't get it to work on Debian. Can you tell me what the current
dependencies of Read are, in terms of functionality in and versions of
upstream packages, not Fedora package names? Or better yet, can you add
a README that includes that information so that (non-Fedora) packagers
have the same information and can package Read without spending days on
source code analysis and trial-and-error?
Similar information would be useful for Browse. I did get it to at least
start up (though it shows some SVG icon related Tracebacks in the log
file), but I can't be sure I'm not missing a dependency that's used only
at certain times.
In an ideal world, I would expect maintainers to announce the above
information on sugar-devel whenever the corresponding change lands in
