Description Nicolas Mailhot 2006-06-18 04:53:17 EDT
The buildsys won't build packages with U+007E (tilde) in the release tag.
U+007E (~) is a valid character part of the Base Latin unicode block
It's a spacing character like U+005F (_)
Local rpmbuild works with it happily

There is no reason to block build on it (without any reason given BTW : build
failed, no build logs available)
Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2009-03-24 14:13:54 EDT
I think rpmbuild fails on this now, but even if not, the packaging guidelines say that it's not allowed.  We're definitely not going to do anything about it in plague
