Description Tomas Orsava 2019-01-11 15:46:42 UTC
RPMDiff for the python3 component is reporting a problem with the `unversioned-python` man page in the platform-python RPM:

Manpage checker reported problems with /usr/share/man/man1/unversioned-python.1.gz on all architectures:
manpage with .gz suffix is not really gzipped; "man" may fail upon this file, and should be checked before waiving

The man page displays without issues, but it'd be better to gzip it.

Comment 2 Miro Hrončok 2019-04-24 13:04:41 UTC
Note that RPM gzips manpages automatically (but apparently it skips those that already have .gz suffix).

Comment 3 Tomas Orsava 2019-04-30 00:29:24 UTC
Patrik, are you already working on this? I'm already building a fix since I mistakenly thought *I* was assigned here :)

Comment 4 Tomas Orsava 2019-04-30 15:32:49 UTC
Since the build worked, I tested it and everything works, so here's a pull request:


Reviews welcome, Patrik.
