Description Robert Scheck 2004-12-16 04:03:45 EST
Description of problem:
Many Red Hat spec files contain obsoleted and/or legacy rpm tags, 
which should be replaced before the upgrade of RPM to 4.4.x - it 
will come, I guess (sooner or later).
Actual results / Expected results:
For most things,


over all spec files should do this for example. 

The tag 'RHNPlatform' will be obsoleted. More information about the
changes of RPM are in the RPM changelog. 

Additional info:
I assigned it to the distribution, because it maybe should done 
generally and not only per package.

Assigning to CVS-meisters, if they want to do a search and replace...

About as low a priority as it gets, but I'll leave the bug open so we
know it's a potential issue.

Time to close this bug now; Rawhide should be rebuilt completely for Fedora Core 
4 using rpm 4.4.1.
