Greetings and sorry for my delayed reply,
as I am packing the geany-plugins project for Fedora I probably can clarify
* geany-plugins is packaged as a meta-package containing a lot of
sub-packages (one for each plugin)
* i actually did not recognize the bug mentioned above, but now will take
care of it
* reasons for not recognizing are women…
So far… what are your recommendations for properly fixing this issue? I
would go ahead with removing any dependency to webkitgtk for now - which
probably results in losing the above mentioned plugins in Fedora.
I'd personally appreciate if it was possible for you to upgrade your
plugins to use webkitgtk3, though. If I see this correctly this is a
missing step for upgrading to GTK3 anyway, isn't it? - Geany and
Geany-Plugins in Fedora are still not GTK3, yet, because there were some
plugins which were not GTK3-ready. Can you update me how stuff is going
Thanks for pinging and Best Regards,
