Re: repoview-0.5-1.fc4

Description of problem:
Repoview creates the view page and rss in accordance with the package build
date. For example:

Index of /yum/Fedora/core/4/updates/i386:
audit-libs-devel-1.0.14-1.fc4.i386.rpm  08-Feb-2006 16:08   58K

#   06-Feb-2006: audit-libs-devel-1.0.14-1.fc4

The expectation (I think) is that the RSS and view page should coincide with the
file date which depicts the update/download date.

GREAT package by the way.

FC3 and FC4 have now been EOL'd.

Please check the ticket against a current Fedora release, and either adjust the
release number, or close it if appropriate.


Your friendly BZ janitor :-)

This is still an issue in Fedora 7.

Comment 3 Konstantin Ryabitsev 2008-02-02 18:44:41 UTC
I see how that would be useful in some cases, but I would prefer to stick to
build date instead. Repoview is not looking at the RPM files, only at the
metadata, and there can be cases when actual RPM files are not accessible, so
this will add extra unnecessary complexity, imo.
