Description Nicolas Mailhot 2008-07-12 05:22:15 EDT
FESCO decided to relegate UTF-8 from package names (where they work fine) to
synthetic Provides.

rpmbuild needs to be fixed to implement FESCO decision

$ rpmbuild -bs /tmp/ecolier-court-fonts.spec 
error: line 23: Dependency tokens must begin with alpha-numeric, '_' or '/':
Provides: écolier-court-fonts = 20070702-1.fc10.nim

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

Comment 1 Christopher D. Stover 2008-10-25 13:21:12 EDT
I didn't see this problem specifically addressed in the change log but is this problem fixed in rpm-4.6.0-0.rc1.5?
Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 2008-10-25 21:55:14 EDT
Its trivial to test whether the problem is fixed.

Install any *.src.rpm (I usually use the time pkg as a Guinea pig)

    Provides: foo_with_utf8_chars


If the build fails, the problem has not been addressed.
Comment 3 Christopher D. Stover 2008-10-25 23:19:11 EDT
Thanks for bringing it down to my level Jeff. :D  It's definitely still a problem.  Adding the FutureFeature keyword since it's not a bug but this probably needs to be addressed in the near future.

Let's get one thing straight here: FESCo does not get to dictate what rpm implements.

That aside, fixed in rawhide now.
