ghelp:gnome-feedback doesn't work in Feisty

Bug #150854 reported by Dave Neary on 2007-10-09
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
gnome-user-docs (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: yelp

From the Help pages of the "Network Settings" tool, I clicked on the "GNOME feedback page" link in the "About this Document" page. The link's URI is "ghelp:gnome-feedback". When I clicked on it, I get an error dialog saying "Could not load document: The Uniform Resource Identifier ‘ghelp:gnome-feedback’ is invalid or does not point to an actual file."

I imagine this is a Yelp bug, but I really don't know.

This bug was reported at gnome almost 2 years ago. Still it is present in Ubuntu. At least 2 version are affected: 7.10 and 8.04. I suspect 7.04, 6.10 and 6.04 have this problem as well (based on the date the bug is reported at gnome).

The gnome bug talks about fixing it for gnome 2.14, 2.15, 2.16, 2.18 and 2.20. Ubuntu 8.04 uses 2.22 and the bug is still present.

The duplicate bug here states that not only "ghelp:gnome-feedback" is not working, but "ghelp:fdl" and "ghelp:gpl" fail as well.

Isn't it about time this bug is fixed?

This is still the same in Hardy beta.

A fix for this has now been committed upstream. I'm going to merge it into our gnome-user-docs branch for a sneaky Hardy upload when we update the translations before release.

Ok, thanks for the fix, but when will it be updated? The current version of Hardy still has this issue. Waiting only gives us less time to confirm it is fixed.
