Description Rick Moseley 2003-09-03 20:31:52 UTC

Description of problem:
When an Eclipse C/C++ project is exported to a source rpm the "-b" option is
specified when the patch is created which causes a backup to be created of any
file that was modified between this source rpm creation and the previous source
rpm creation.  These files are denoted by having the "patch tag" appended to
their names.  A method needs to be created which will parse the project and find
any files with the "patch tag" appended and copy them back to the project.  This
will ensure that the next time an srpm is created from this project, all the
proper files will be present.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. modify a source file and export an Eclipse C/C++ project as a source rpm,
remember what was entered in the "patch tag" field and what file was modified
2. when step 1 is complete, verify that the "filename" that was modified does
not have a "filename.patchtag" entry anywhere in the project

Actual Results:  No file of the name "filename.patchtag" was found

Expected Results:  A file with the name of "filename.patchtag" should be found

Comment 1 Rick Moseley 2003-09-15 18:44:02 UTC
have checked in a workaround for now where the "%patch" statements that the RPM
plugin adds to the spec file do not have the "-b" option.  I know what the
correct solution is now and am working on a fix.
