Description of problem:
The rpm-spec-mode.el has been updated for Xemacs but not for GNU Emacs. Though
both of them are not up-to-date. Could you please grab the latest
rpm-spec-mode.el ? It should (must?) be the same file for both Xemacs and GNU
Emacs. The latest version fix a bug for the add-change-log-entry function when
release tag contains a macro. This is really annoying me :)
The fix should be available here :
http://livna.org/~anvil/fedora/Emacs/rpm-spec-mode-field-value.patch and should
work on both GNU Emacs and Xemacs.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1/ Add a macro (%blah with a %define blah foo above) in the release tag.
2/ try C-c C-e
3/ Look at the changelog entry.
System is stock severn2.
I don't see anything newer at <http://www.tihlde.org/~stigb/rpm-spec-mode.el>.
Perhaps the version in xemacs cvs is newer?
Jens is correct (and the "upstream" URL is correct too). I have committed some
updates to the one in XEmacs and forwarded everything upstream. I haven't
received any feedback from Stig, apparently he hasn't applied the fixes yet.
Probably his version lags far behind the one in XEmacs packages.
I don't personally use GNU Emacs so I can't comment more on the version included
in it. About time to start using XEmacs instead, Dams? :)))
Oh, and as you probably know, the "XEmacs version" is available at
Created attachment 95538 [details]
GNU Emacs compatibility patch for rpm-spec-mode.el.
This patch, applied to the xemacs version, revert some changes and bring the
GNU Emacs compatibility back.
Thanks Ville but i will keep the little GNU :)
The version included in GNU emacs package is quite the same than the one
provided with shrike.
Stig has been idle for quite some times now : some of the changes has been sent
more than 6 months ago. I suggest we use the xemacs rpm-spec-mode.el version +
the little patch i attached.
Jens, what do you think ?
Sounds fine to me.
It should get updated in emacs-21.3-8.
Ville, are you going to apply Dams' field value patch to
xemacs pkg cvs? :)
It's already in XEmacs CVS and packages since June...
