Version patch for META

Comment 2 Chong Kai Xiong 2005-09-10 06:33:21 UTC
Created attachment 118676 [details]
Patch for .spec file.

This patch does 2 things:
a. Fixes the version information in the META file (see the attachment before
this one)
b. Install META

Comment 3 Gérard Milmeister 2005-09-10 19:17:50 UTC
I must admit, that this is the first time I heard of findlib, so I made
a little research myself. One problem is that the author of lablgtk doesn't
seem to care that much about META. However, since the patch is small I think
I will include it into the spec file directly. I had trouble to download
your patch since it was gzipped and the browser insisted in showing it
in the window :-( You don't need to zip it.

Comment 4 Gérard Milmeister 2005-09-11 01:16:25 UTC
Rebuild with META

Comment 5 Chong Kai Xiong 2005-09-11 01:57:39 UTC
Yeah, it's a pity. The META file hardly takes work to maintain and it makes
writing build scripts a lot easier since findlib provides a uniform interface to
query package information. 

I've submitted a review request (#166919) for my findlib package here some weeks
ago and still haven't got a response =/
