13:12 Nanar> jbj: I made a library for my need, but feel free to comment,
integrate, patch, ect...
13:14 jbj> Nanar: hang the ptr in bugzilla please. I'll try to
week. perhaps not for rpm-4.4.1 which I need to get out
features creep on me, but immediately thereafter.
13:15 jbj> just snip the scollback, more than enough.
13:15 Nanar> ok no problem and no emergency
13:16 Nanar> I back home and fill bugzilla ASAP
13:33 rsc> Dumb question: Why does rpm have sqlite support? Tomorrow
requirements to xorg-x11 or qt? :-S
13:34 fray> rsc, because there are some of us who can no longer deal
support problems of BerkleyDB in our environments
13:39 _jasonc_> and bdb licensing has scared away a corporation or
would like to use rpm
13:50 jbj> _jasonc_: way more complicated than obvious. cheap
13:50 _jasonc_> jbj: not necessarily debating merits of that argument
13:50 _jasonc_> just stating that it has been an issue
13:51 jbj> resc: yes, licensing is main reason. stability too, 2 years of
wrestling nptl has generated much bdbd hatred unnecessarily.
Setting priority to high since patch is included
Misleading subject as no db related patches. The utility needs some work:
[pauln@enki rpmconstant-0.0.3]$ ./rpmconstant name
[pauln@enki rpmconstant-0.0.3]$ ./rpmconstant -c rpmtag name
Not considering for inclusion at this time, if it gets fixed up please submit
via rpm-devel list.
