Description Ralf Corsepius 2006-07-27 02:14:28 EDT
Description of problem:
createrepo's caching is non-functional for older rpms, such as rh7.3 built rpms:

It creates cache files names like this:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. createrepo -c $(pwd)/cache $(pwd)/RPMS/<rh7.3-rpms>
2. ls ./cache/*

AFAIS, the cause is createrepo's cache file names being based on
%{name}-%{SHA1SUM}. This fails with packages having been built with rpms not
supporting SHA1SUMs.

This is known and has been fixed in upstream cvs.

Am I right we can expect an updated rpm any time soon?

I'd really appreciate it, if maintainers would learn to destinguish PRs on bugs
in FC packages from upstream bugs and refrain from closing PRs, which still are
present for the package a PR had been against.
