Description Jarod Wilson 2006-06-29 10:01:28 EDT
Description of problem:
Several -java package in the devel tree are rpm-older than the ones in the FC5
tree, which causes problems when folks try to upgrade.

  5: 0:1.0.4-0.FC5 (FC5-updates)
  6: 0:1.0.4-0 (FC6)

  5: 0:0.2.5-0.FC5 (FC5-updates)
  6: 0:0.2.5-0 (FC6)

  5: 0:2.12.4-0.FC5 (FC5-updates)
  6: 0:2.12.4-0 (FC6)

  5: 0:2.12.3-0.FC5 (FC5-updates)
  6: 0:2.12.3-0 (FC6)

  5: 0:2.8.5-0.FC5 (FC5-updates)
  6: 0:2.8.5-0 (FC6)

  5: 0:0.12.0-0.FC5 (FC5-updates)
  6: 0:0.12.0-0 (FC6)

Recommended fix is to follow Fedora Extras packaging standards and make use of
the recently added %dist tag support in brew. Example:

RCS file: /cvs/dist/rpms/cairo-java/devel/cairo-java.spec,v
retrieving revision 1.32
diff -r1.32 cairo-java.spec
< Release:      0
> Release:      0%{?dist}

Thus the next build for the devel tree would end up 0:1.0.4-0.fc6, which is
sufficiently rpm-newer to fix the upgrade path.

Though I do not feel comfortable about %{?dist}, I'm not able to find a better
workaround in the context of current rpm and package management tools.

I will switch to %{?dist} as soon as FC6 T2 is finished.
