rpm: include source package NEVR in binary package
Last modified: 2015-03-04 20:22:51 EST
Currently, there is only the more or less free-form SOURCERPM tag that includes the source RPM name. It would be good to have explicit data on the precise version of the source RPM, including the epoch. The SHA1HEADER hash of the SRPM would be nice to have, too.
Obviously, these fields would have to be optional (but they should be included for SRPMs as well, if the SRPM isn't actually buildable from itself in a reproducible manner, which I suspect happens in some cases). But they should be populated automatically during regular package builds.
