13:11  Nanar> jbj:
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
integrate this
            week. perhaps not for rpm-4.4.1 which I need to get out
lest the
            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
Comment 1 R P Herrold 2005-02-08 14:36:48 EST
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
with the
             support problems of BerkleyDB in our environments
13:39  _jasonc_> and bdb licensing has scared away a corporation or
two that
                 would like to use rpm
13:50  jbj> _jasonc_: way more complicated than obvious. cheap
bastards imho.
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.
Comment 2 Rahul Sundaram 2005-08-13 19:43:49 EDT
Setting priority to high since patch is included
Comment 3 Paul Nasrat 2005-11-28 15:38:25 EST
Misleading subject as no db related patches.  The utility needs some work:

[pauln@enki rpmconstant-0.0.3]$ ./rpmconstant name
Segmentation fault
[pauln@enki rpmconstant-0.0.3]$ ./rpmconstant -c rpmtag name
name: 1000

Not considering for inclusion at this time, if it gets fixed up please submit
via rpm-devel list.
