Description Moritz Barsnick 2004-11-01 10:04:28 EST
Description of problem:
In the SPEC file, there is an unescaped RPM macro, namely %configure. 
This is unfortunately expanded in the changelog (rpm -qp --changelog 
$file.rpm), and is a bit annoying.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. tail +`fgrep -n %changelog bc.spec | cut -d: -f1`  bc.spec | fgrep 
' %configure'
Actual results:
1. - use %configure

Expected results:
1. - use %%configure

Additional info:
At another position in the %changelog it's perfectly correct...
Comment 1 Thomas Woerner 2005-11-21 08:23:08 EST
Fixed in rawhide in rpm bc-1.06-19 or newer.

Indeed, it looks fine now. Thanks for uncluttering!
