Description Deven T. Corzine 2000-10-10 03:57:00 UTC
Why does Red Hat Linux 7.0 use RPM version 4.0, yet www.rpm.org only
describes 3.0.4?

Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2001-05-21 19:59:07 UTC
rpm-4.0 has been documented at http://www.rpm.org for at least the last month

Comment 2 Deven T. Corzine 2001-05-21 20:31:26 UTC
Okay, maybe it's been documented for the past month.  I filed this bug report
over SEVEN months ago -- why was it ignored for so long?  (Do you really expect
people to bother reporting bugs if the reports are going to be ignored?)

Comment 3 Jeff Johnson 2001-05-21 20:36:06 UTC
No, 7 months is a long time.

Meanwhile, you're assuming that I have something to do with www.rpm.org,
and that hasn't been the case until recently. bugzilla is for reporting
bugs against packages, not about problems with Red Hat peripheral services.

Comment 4 Deven T. Corzine 2001-05-21 21:30:14 UTC
I don't assume anything about you, since I don't know you.  All I'm assuming is
that someone should respond to bug reports in this system in a more timely
manner, even if it's only to say "go talk to so-and-so instead."  The fact that
it took over 7 months to receive a response makes it much less likely that I'll
report the next bug I discover.

I did consider this an indirect problem with the package, though.  It didn't
seem right to be using a version of RPM that nobody else could get without using
Red Hat 7.0 -- it became very difficult to try to rebuild rawhide packages for
Red Hat 6.2, for example...
