Requires/BuildRequires in package descriptions

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


I've once again found some BuildRequires which ended up in a package 
description (already filed in Bugzilla). This is not the first time this 
happens. If the BuildRequires is listed after the description, RPM considers it 
part of the description. This is bad because this means the BuildRequires is 
ignored, which gets unnoticed if the package still builds (with reduced 
functionality) without it.

This would be pretty easy to detect in an automated QA step (grep the summaries 
and descriptions for RPM keywords with the ':'), so I'd suggest this as a QA 
step to consider, similar to the rpath checking.
