Description Frédéric Buclin 2010-12-03 19:10:54 UTC
The dependency is set in the wrong order. bugzilla-contrib should depend on bugzilla, not the opposite. It's not that common to use tools in contrib/. Also, the current dependency means that Ruby is required to install Bugzilla, which is a non-sense as Bugzilla is a pure Perl application. manu, could you fix that, please?

The problem stems fron the fact that running checksetup.pl creates contrib/.htaccess . If the contrib directory doesn't exist, checksetup.pl fails and we can't afford to have that happen. The two solutions that I can think of are : * patch Bugzilla/Install/Filesystem.pl to ignore contrib/ if it doesn't exist. * ship the bugzilla rpm with an empty contrib directory, the contrib sub-package itself containing only the files. Note that I'll have to check that the second solution doesn't violate packaging guidelines. LpSolit, any opinion ?

(In reply to comment #1) > Well, Ruby and Python but the latter seems inescapable in the Fedora ecosystem. Python is maybe the de facto language in the Fedora world, but Bugzilla itself only requires Perl, and I don't know why another language is required. > * patch Bugzilla/Install/Filesystem.pl to ignore contrib/ if it doesn't exist. > * ship the bugzilla rpm with an empty contrib directory, the contrib > sub-package itself containing only the files. For the current problem, i.e. the Fedora RPM, you should include an empty contrib/ directory, so that you don't need to hack the code. But more globally, as this problem also exists for other Linux distros, you should file a bug upstream asking either checksetup.pl to first create contrib/ if it doesn't exists, or ignore contrib/.htaccess. The latter solution makes more sense as there is no need to configure an empty directory. On the other hand, already creating .htaccess would already protect contrib/ in case files are added to it by bugzilla-contrib later (so that you don't need to rerun checksetup.pl, unless bugzilla-contrib contains contrib/.htaccess itself). I will let mkanat decide what's best.
Comment 3 Max Kanat-Alexander 2010-12-05 18:26:29 UTC
The main package should ship a contrib/ with just recode.pl in it.
