Cricketscore applet available in Fedora

Cricket score applet, which brings cricket score to your gnome panel will be shortly available in Fedora repositories. Thanks ankur for the review. yum install cricscore-applet enjoy!

Only downside is, the applet uses blocking methods (urllib2) to access the internet, which should be replaced with threads or twisted in future.

    IMO, a more immediate problem is that GNOME Shell has no support for applets. Since it is going to be the default UI, you will have to find a way out. I don’t know what the right path would be

      I will let the upstream know about it. Sure, we will work it out.

    When did it go into testing? I cant seem to install it. Yum inst finding it, not even in updates-testing 😦

    I think you forgot to add the bug number to be closed while pushing to bodhi, the bugzilla bug report isnt saying anything about the update too.

      Sure sachin. As Rahul mentioned in comment #1 , From GNOME 3.0 the panels will be removed from the desktop environment, we need find a way to make cricscore applet work in 3.0. Please include compatibility for gnome 3.0 in 2.0 version of your app.
