README.COMPILATION.PROBLEMS not really of any use in %doc
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:36 EST
Description of problem:
The file README.COMPILATION.PROBLEMS doesn't really need to be
included as a %doc in the bzip2 package. It doesn't cover anything
which can be done with the bzip2's binary packages.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. grep %doc bzip2.spec
I think that this file shlould be useful when instalation from src.rpm
package fail. In this case there should be some info for solving this
Huh? I don't get your point.
If you fail to build from the src.rpm, you should look into the
package source (bzip2-1.0.2.tar.bz2 for example, or /usr/src/redhat/
BUILD/bzip2-1.0.2/). And there you will always find the named file.
If you fail to build from the src.rpm, you may not even have this
arch.rpm (e.g. ...i386.rpm) installed yet, so you may not even have
the file in %doc which I mentioned.
For the same reason, no arch.rpm packages carry the standard
"INSTALL" file from autofoo.
I disagree with your resolution and would reopen this but I'm not the
package owner, so I leave judgement up to you. :-/
