Package abiword

This package has a packaging problem, which should be described in the notes. Check where the problem is coming from, and work with the maintainer to correct it.

If this is a false positive, file a portingdb bug.

See abiword in the Fedora Pagure, or go directly to the corresponding spec file.

Upstream ?

The single file provided upstream is a tiny stub that has no compatibility issues. However, the make file component supplied to install it contains a command line invocation of Python that's not compatible. This has now been corrected in trunk upstream, and should be released in Abiword 3.1.


Fedora M

There is a problem in Fedora packaging, not necessarily with the software itself. See the linked Fedora bug.
