left in the source archive or does that have to be scrubbed?
Replacing them should be sufficient, as long as they are also deleted in
%prep. You don't need to repackage the source archive, since we
technically have permission to redistribute them, albeit under extremely
narrow and unfriendly terms.
2) nautilus-dropbox itself is a small piece of the larger dropbox
system. When you install it, it will determine if you have ~/.dropbox-dist on
your system. If you don't, it will run the dropbox setup "thing", which
downloads dropbox-dist from Evenflow for your system and places it in
~/.dropbox-dist. The contents of ~/.dropbox-dist are precompiled variants of
all of the libraries and programs they need to run. Dropbox appears to ignore
the system versions and just has you use whatever they include.
This is the very definition of code fail. I think you're going to need
to patch this out, so it uses system libs.
This isn't really part of nautilus-dropbox, it's just
installed by the setup
program on the first run. The concern here is do we care about programs that
download large wads of precompiled software and stuff it in dot directories?
Yeah, we care.
