update gspell to 1.8.1
Closed, ResolvedPublic


I was trying to build something depending on gspell>=1.8 and it seems we only have gspell 1.6 on stable repo.
Maybe it's time to upgrade it.

I don't like to block your work but I would say this is part of the T6971 upgrade. Additionally, we currently only support enchant1 and we've been opposed to packaging two different versions of enchant up to this point. The new gspell update seems to only support enchant2. There is a fairly complex dependency graph to update enchant to version 2. One of the main blockers is poedit which will require a gtk3 built version of wxwidgets to use a newer version of gtkspell (gtkspell3) which in turn, can be built against enchant 2. We did try to upgrade wxwidgets to gtk3 before (T5974) but there were too many bugs (mostly theming and display issues) and we rolled it back.

What package are you trying to package exactly?

We may have to eventually cave in and package both versions of enchant as well as wxgtk3.

I was trying to build fractal (matrix client, I wanted to test something else than but don't worry, it's not a priority.

Assigning to Josh as he'll have the final say when performing the GNOME stack upgrade and will have to figure this out.
