Description Ralf Corsepius 2006-04-03 00:16:23 EDT
Description of problem:
Rpm's apidocs are missing. 

The rpm-devel rpm is shipped with a an empty
/usr/share/doc/rpm-devel-<version>/apidocs directory.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
4.4.2-15.2 and earlier, seemingly at least comprizing fc4.

Expected results:
Shipping the docs.

Later versions of rpm contain the apidocs, which are also online
at http://wraptastic.org.

Do you find this answer appropriate?

This PR is on a packaging bug in FC4 and FC5, which even your last week's rpm
update failed to fix. 

Also, the apidocs on rpm.org do not point to a current version.

I.e. this packaging bug in FC has not been fixed.
Comment 3 Jeff Johnson 2006-04-12 13:55:03 EDT
Yes I find this answer appropriate for someone requesting rpm doco.

The apidocs in rpm-devel-4.4.6-1 are uptodate, and easily extracted
for whatever purpose you wish.

But if you want to wait on FC4 and FC5 and FC6 fixing, be my guest ...
Comment 4 Paul Nasrat 2006-04-12 14:00:00 EDT
Jeff, whilst I appreciate your ongoing work on bugs and new features in upstream
RPM, and CLOSED>UPSTREAM being a valid state for some of the bugs in bugzilla
things like this which are specifically aimed at Fedora or RHEL aren't really
resolved by that state.  I'm reopening so it remains on my list.
