Description Matthew Miller 2004-11-19 03:36:28 UTC
Description of problem:

This is trivial, but the URL: field in the libxml (not libxml2) RPM
points to http://rpmfind.net/veillard/XML/, which tells me that I'm
"Lost in the WWW".

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

I noticed it in the updates that appeared for FC2 and FC3
(libxml-1.8.17-10.1.2. and libxml-1.8.17-12, respectively). There
doesn't appear to be a libxml package in rawhide currently -- I assume
it's finally declared obsolete.

How reproducible:

Every time you look at the RPM's metainfo. :)

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -qp --qf '%{url}\n' libxml-1.8.17-*.i386.rpm 

Actual results:


Expected results:


Additional info:

http://rpmfind.net/veillard/XML/ actually works sometimes, but then
goes away on reload -- I notice that there's round-robin DNS, and
that's probably what's going on.

Comment 1 Daniel Veillard 2004-11-30 14:57:52 UTC
I can't fix the round robin. I don't think I will fix the
libxml package which is really obsolete, I don't think it's 
worth pushing updates just for that change. So while your
report is right, I will close it as a DEFERRED. People doing
any kind of active development should use libxml2 anyway
and that package has the proper informations,
