just for completeness a short info here: I've managed to built the Plugins
package with temporarily disabling devhelp, markdown and webhelper. [1]

It'd be great if someone will be able to port stuff to WebKit2 or,
alternatively, if you think I've missed something point me to the correct

Greetings and sorry for my delayed reply,

as I am packing the geany-plugins project for Fedora I probably can clarify
some confusion:

* 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,

I think Dominic might can give some details here. I've already pinged him.
