I wanted to know minutes ago, what repos I have under F35. Everything seems to be okay, but one repo does not mean nything to me. It’s name is Copr repo for PyCharm owned by phracek.
Does someone know something about ? Dr. Google said it has to do with IDE. Means to me developing software. But I’m not in this buisness.
I was going to ask the same question.
The Copr repo for PyCharm owned by phracek was included in the workstation install. There is a reason that copr repos are separate, should a copr repo be active by default in the F35 installation?
BTW this is a brand new gaming computer, F35 it’s first boot and it runs all but one of my Steam games.
So if I had set the third party repos off the copr would not have been added?
OK that kind of makes sense, they are not active in the live session before install.
It was just a “I didn’t order this” moment. I see this is also where the nvidia driver repo came from.
Copr is a set of software repositories outside of the official Fedora distribution. Everything there needs to be open source and legal to distribute, but doesn’t need to go through review or meet the fairly-strict Fedora Packaging Guidelines. I’m not sure exactly what the sticking point on PyCharm is, but I suspect that it’s because it’s based on some bundled framework that’s hard to untangle to meet the packaging rules. It is an open source project, so the Workstation group decided that it’s useful enough to make it easily available to people despite that, if people opt-in to those extra repos.
It’s not an issue with PyCharm per-say, it’s that a typical User reaction to seering the title of the repo, and not expecting to have this specifically. The title says explicitly Copr repo for PyCharm owned by phracek
A New User can be taken aback slightly about this, it’s just the wording of the title.
It’s quite alright to have this reaction, It’s rather normal recently. In the software center, you can move the slider on any repo you want ot disregard.
