rpmlint doesn't complain about empty tags
Last modified: 2007-12-21 16:08:24 EST
Description of problem:
If a .spec file contains this line:
Then rpmlint doesn't complain about it, but rpmbuild won't process the spec file
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a .spec file containing the line "Conflicts:"
2. Run rpmlint on the .spec file
An error/warning should be produced
rpmlint does not have a full featured specfile parser; for specfile syntax
checks you can run eg. "rpm -q --specfile /path/to/foo.spec".
Limitation documented upstream, but as far as I'm concerned, the implementation
is unlikely to change. http://rpmlint.zarb.org/cgi-bin/trac.cgi/changeset/1383
