patch to resolve

Description of problem:
The description of the RPM features a hard coded OS name.  This hard coded name may result in rebuilds incorrectly identifying themselves as RHEL.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):compat-glibc-2.12-4.el7

How reproducible:100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1.read spec file description
2.locate Red Hat Enterprise Linux

Actual results:
Hardcoded product name

Expected results:
Not hard coded name

Additional info:
Attached patch allow for the name to be determined at RPM build time.  Similar to solution in #1114123

Comment 3 Jeff Law 2016-01-05 20:36:31 UTC
Regardless of the system used to build the compat-glibc package, the description is still accurate.  Specifically the compat-glibc package provides a set of headers and stub libraries for RHEL 6.
