Ticket #244 (closed: fixed)
Bundling exception request for Cura
|Reported by:||churchyard||Owned by:|
|Priority:||normal||Component:||Bundled Library Exception|
This is a request to grant a bundling exception for Cura.
Cura includes Cura_SF, a fork of Skeinforge. Skeinforge is not a library, but an application, Cura includes heavily modified core of Skeinforge (without GUI).
Cura review request: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=901659
Skeinforge review request (approved): https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=863793
Note, that Cura originated as a fork of Skeinforge and the author of Cura says: "It might be better to see Cura as a fork of Skeinforge then as an application that uses skeinforge."
The other important thing is, it is impossible to use original Skeinforge in Cura, as it communicates with the app differently. Cura_SF is also impossible to use as a standalone app to replace Skeinforge in Fedora.
I've asked the author of Cura to answer questions from https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:No_Bundled_Libraries#Standard_questions
Answers can be found here: https://github.com/daid/Cura/issues/335
- "Right now [Cura_SF is] an integrated part of Cura. Cura cannot live without Cura_SF nor can Cura_SF work without some parts of Cura."
- "However, our "future plan" is to replace Cura_SF completely with our own solution, answering the "unbundle" question."
I will try to provide any more information needed. Thanks a lot.
