Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 451321
please rebuild - jgroups
Last modified: 2008-12-11 15:49:26 EST
Package lists Red Hat, Inc as a vendor tag. This causes various problems. I've
verified that the tag is not set in the spec, so a rebuild should fix it. Please
bump release and rebuild for rawhide.
I'd do this myself, but package ACL's are preventing me from committing. Also
consider removing those.
The vendor tag is added by the build system, it cannot be removed. What problems are you seeing due to it?
Right, there was a problem that I couldn't talk about publicly at the time, but I can now. Spacewalk was using NEVRA as a differentior between two packages, figuring that no two packages should ever have identical NEVRA. For various reasons, we were looking at using the vendor tag.
This didn't work either, specifically because of problems like this (vendor not saying Fedora Project, which it would if you built this today). We now use the md5sum of the package. This was probably built way back in the FC days, when the vendor was properly "Red Hat, Inc." and hasn't required a rebuild since.
So in short, you don't HAVE to rebuild this, but it'd be nice to get the entire distribution from one "vendor"
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
This is the version of jgroups in Fedora now:
And it had Vendor/Packager = "Fedora Project"
Closing as fixed. Feel free to reopen if you are still having problems.
