#29418 closed defect (fixed)

transmission should not use sparkle

Reported by: ryandesign (Ryan Schmidt) Owned by: macports-tickets@…
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 1.9.2
Keywords: Cc: kurthindenburg (Kurt Hindenburg)
Port: transmission

Description

The transmission port checks for updates using sparkle and allows the user to update itself this way. The port should prevent this; MacPorts should be the only mechanism by which a user updates software that was installing using MacPorts.

This is a continuation of #22618 in which the automatic checking was disabled (but manual checking and updating is still possible).

I"m not sure how hard this would be - vlc/gitx have patches that remove their sparkle

I"m not sure this is the best way - it appears to work by disabling the menu entry
