The Red Hat specfile has had that description error corrected since
7.3.  Are you sure you aren't looking at an ancient postgresql-tcl

Comment 2 Victor Vislobokov 2004-08-30 04:41:07 UTC
I'm sure. I have this error at Fedora Core 2,

Comment 3 Tom Lane 2004-08-30 14:50:18 UTC
Mph.  Well, I can prove from our CVS contents that the 7.4.2-1
specfile contained the correct description, so somehow RPM is
regurgitating a long-obsolete description for you.  Perhaps this
represents a failure in an upgrade process?  Anyway I'm going to
reassign this bug to the RPM package owner and see what he has to say.

Comment 4 Jeff Johnson 2004-08-30 18:42:29 UTC
rpm uses the specspo, not the package, description if available.

Either uninstall specspo (to use the package description), or update
the description in specspo.
