Summary: Client for Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing
The Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing (BOINC) is a
software platform which supports distributed computing, primarily in
the form of "volunteer" computing and "desktop grid" computing. It is
well suited for problems which are often described as "trivially
parallel". BOINC is the underlying software used by projects such as
Einstein@Home,, the World Community
Grid, and many other distributed computing projects.

This package installs the BOINC client software, which will allow
your computer to participate in one or more BOINC projects, using
your spare computer time to search for cures for diseases, model
protein folding, study global warming, discover sources of
gravitational waves, and many other types of scientific and
mathematical research.

* Mon Aug 06 2018
  - Remove unnecessary ldconfig from devel subpackage
* Tue Jul 24 2018
  - Update to version 7.12.1.
  - Remove doc package, since the files have been removed from the
    source. Actually it wasn't even the documentation, but the
    server code.
  - Disable idle detection via the XSS API and remove dependency to
    libXScrnSaver-devel. This feature requires access to a running
    X server, which the BOINC client does not have in OpenSUSE.
  - Rename the devel package and provide the correct dependency.
    The devel package provides the headers for libboinc, and has
    nothing to do with the BOINC client.
  - Add conflict to original devel package.
  - Remove unnecessary dependency to libxslt.
  - Update systemd service file with changes from upstream: start
    after, and use "ProtectHome=true".
  - Move bash completion file to /usr/share tree to fix rpmlint.
  - Declare license files as %license.
  - Don't install `notes` and `todo` - these are internal notes of
    the developers and not helpful to users.
  - Drop 0001-MGR-support-wxWidgets-without-webview.patch, which has
    landed upstream (commit 27bb3c9e).
  - libboinc-shared.patch: Build shared libraries for client and
    static libraries for science apps. Science apps are distributed
    as binaries over the BOINC network, so dynamic linking doesn't
    make sense. But we can use dynamic linking for the client.
  - build-client-scripts.patch: Add some targets to fix build.
  - Fix default path for boincscr.
* Wed Jul 11 2018
  - Update to 7.8.6
    * can't find any useful ChangeLog :(
