Description Quentin Armitage 2016-02-04 08:46:16 EST
Description of problem:
The libnl3.spec file give the URL for libnl3 as http://www.infradead.org/~tgr/libnl/, but it is no longer maintained there.

It appears to now be maintained at https://github.com/thom311/libnl/

The out-of-date information makes it harder than necessary to find the upstream for the package.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
libnl3-3.2.27-3

How reproducible:
Always!

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Look at the spec file
2.
3.

Actual results:
Shows infradead

Expected results:
Shows github

Additional info:
The Source statements also need updating
Comment 1 Thomas Haller 2016-02-24 14:16:36 EST
I think this is still correct.

Note that there is no other website beside http://www.infradead.org/~tgr/libnl/.
Only the git source is nowadays hosted at https://github.com/thom311/libnl/

So, if the RPM mentions infradead.org as website, it is correct.





Indeed, http://www.infradead.org/~tgr/libnl/ contains outdated information which should be fixed. Especially it should clearly state that the source code and latest releases can be found at https://github.com/thom311/libnl/
