Make install-info use in scriptlets failsafe
Comment 2 Nalin Dahyabhai 2007-01-22 14:53:25 EST
For future reference, what's the rule here?  If we call install-info last, we
explicitly return 0, or is it that we need to if we call install-info at all?
Comment 3 Ville Skyttä 2007-01-23 12:01:52 EST
The scriptlet's exit code is the one of the last command executed in it, and
execution does not (as of now) stop if an intermediate command returns non-zero.
 So if there are commands after install-info that are not known to fail in
"normal" situations (such as %_excludedocs or read-only /usr/share), an explicit
zero exit code is not needed.

Oh, and this seems to be fixed in CVS, thanks.
