rpmlint looks in changelog for make-check-outside-check-section
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:37 EST
rpmlint looks for "make test" or "make check" outside the %check section of the
spec when checking SRPMs (make-check-outside-check-section). Unfortunately one
of the places it looks is in the changelog, so a changelog entry like this:
* Sat Jul 31 2004 Paul Howarth <email@example.com> 1.20-1
- Update to 1.20
- Moved `make test' into %%check section
- General tidy up of spec file
W: perl-Mail-Mbox-MessageParser make-check-outside-check-section - Moved `make
test' into %%check section
I haven't tested it myself, but I think this was fixed a couple of days ago in
upstream svn: http://rpmlint.zarb.org/cgi-bin/trac.cgi/changeset/1245
Could you try it out and let me know if it works for you?
Hm, skimming the patch tells me that we should probably also skip the test in
The patch worked for me. I agree about the %description sections but I think
it's much less likely to be a problem there.
Fixed in 0.78-1.
