Description Marco Pesenti Gritti 2007-06-15 05:13:56 EDT
Spec URL: http://dev.laptop.org/~marco/xapian-bindings.spec
SRPM URL: http://dev.laptop.org/~marco/xapian-bindings-
Xapian is an Open Source Probabilistic Information Retrieval Library. It offers a highly adaptable toolkit that allows developers to easily add advanced
indexing and search facilities to applications. This package provides the
files needed for scripts which use Xapian.
Comment 1 Olly Betts 2007-06-15 13:42:05 EDT
For the same reasons as for bug#244355, please package Xapian 1.0.1 instead.
Comment 3 Parag AN(पराग) 2007-06-19 05:41:56 EDT
E: xapian-bindings no-binary
The package should be of the noarch architecture because it doesn't contain
any binaries.
Comment 4 Parag AN(पराग) 2007-06-19 05:55:51 EDT
any reason to split docs in xapian-bindings ??
why not to include in in xapian-bindings-python
Comment 5 Marco Pesenti Gritti 2007-06-19 06:38:47 EDT
xapian-bindings also contains bindings for csharp, java, ruby etc. We are not
building them right now but we might want to do it in the future. I'd happily do
away with the doc only package, just not sure how to do it since the docs are
common to all the bindings.

About noarch. If I add "BuildArch: noarch" to the main package the build fails
because the debug info files are created but not packaged. I can only make it
work by adding "BuildArch: i386" to the python subpackage, which obviously is
wrong. Suggestions on how to fix it?
Comment 6 Marco Pesenti Gritti 2007-06-19 07:23:47 EDT
As discussed on irc, I moved the docs file to the python package. We are not
building the base xapian-bindings package anymore.


Comment 7 Parag AN(पराग) 2007-06-19 08:01:15 EDT
Requires: %{name} = %{version}
