Description R P Herrold 2005-03-14 10:46:03 EST
Per channel maintenance request - mandrake reporter:

10:07  Nanar> jbj: rpmbuild --rebuild does not set this tag, for what I saw
10:09  jbj> which tag. %{arch} or %{cookie}? yah, %{cookie} used to trace back
            to original distro src.rpm, carried forward sneakily with
            --rebuild. from memory, %{cookie} has always been bizarre, do not
            rely on any behavior.
10:09  Nanar> %SUORCEPKGID
10:10  jbj> sourcepkgid not set with --rebuild is a bug (if true). bugzilla
10:10  Nanar> jbj: was on rpm 4.2, will check on 4.4
10:10  Nanar> so
10:10  jbj> sourcepkgid is in *.rpm, not *.src.rpm however.
10:11  Nanar> sure :)
10:11  jbj> it matches the header+payload md5 of the *.src.rpm.
Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2005-03-19 15:32:34 EST
Confirmed, --rebuild does not set RPMTAG_SOURCEPKGID.
Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 2005-03-19 15:45:19 EST
And the reason is (drum roll please ;-) because no *.src.rpm
is produced by --rebuild! It's not really clear whether the
original sourcpkgid should be carried forward imho, as there
are still *.src.rpm packages that do not contain RPMTAG_SOURCEPKGID
around, so retrofitting a calculation of the src.rpm pkid
would be needed as well to guarantee sourcepkid exists in
all cases.

seems a waste, but there you go
