Description Tim Waugh 2004-02-24 06:47:46 EST
Description of problem:
'chown rpm.rpm' should be replaced with 'chown rpm:rpm'.  Obvious bad
consequences if there is an rpm.rpm user name, and anyway the '.'
syntax will go away eventually.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2004-02-25 04:35:03 EST
Is this change from rpm.rpm to rpm:rpm really necessary?

It will create endless problems with spec files.
Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2004-02-25 04:38:11 EST
POSIX disallows it.  The xxx.yyy syntax will go away eventually.
Comment 3 Jeff Johnson 2005-10-25 20:46:09 EDT
Fixed in rpm-4.4.3-0.24 when built.
