I am in the process to package a simple application for creating short
movies from a set of photos.
The application is called PhotoFilmStrip and can be found here:
I initially submitted to RPM Fusion because of the dependency on
mencoder, but a reviewer from RPM Fusion noticed that the application
can be used without this dependecy, although it cannot output (render)
This means that we can include in in Fedora, but keep a meta-package
with the appropriate dependecy on mencoder to enable the rendering.
I'm not entirely sure how this application could be useful if we remove
the render functionality, though, as it's pretty limited otherwise and
the risk is to give users the wrong perception that a fedora package is
There is also another problem, without mencoder, when clicking to the
render box, I get a stack trace instead of a warning to install
mencoder, so, at the very minimum, the app should be patched to allow a
nice dialog instead of a scaring python stack trace.
I will try to get in touch with the author to see if he is interested in
fixing this behaviour (and perhaps if he wants to add support to WebM
and Theora), but I would like to know what is the current guideline for
issues such as this?
