[openFATE 313084] Universal rpm symbol for browsers
Feature changed by: Michal Vyskocil (mvyskocil)
Feature #313084, revision 2
Title: Universal rpm symbol for browsers

openSUSE Distribution: Unconfirmed
Priority
Requester: Important

Requested by: Michal Vyskocil (mvyskocil)
Partner organization: openSUSE.org

Description:
- Moved from https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=737105 icedtea-
- web should be pulled-in when browser and JRE is (or is requested to be)
- installed on a system. This can be solved easily: Supplements:
- packageand($BROWSER: java-openjdk) Which seems to be trivial, but ...
- short look at all packages in Productivity/Networking/Web/Browser (the
- first useful usage for rpm groups for me) shows me, we have 8(!)
- different browsers * MozillaFirefox * chromium * arora * konqueror *
- epiphany * reqkonq * midori * and opera fortunately we are talking
- about 3 (I assume konqueror now runs on webkit as well) render engines
- only, so it might be safe allow it for every browser. My proposal is
- add some universal symbol to all browser packages. I would say we can
- add:
- * one universal symbol 'browser' or browser-plugin (browser(plugin)) to
- distinguish between those are not capable use plugins * rendering core
- specific provides, so we will introduce 'gecko' (browser(gecko),
- 'webkit' and 'presto' (even it's not probable there will be derived
- browser on that engine.
