Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 460438
comps needs update because of rpm-apidocs
Last modified: 2013-07-02 19:31:14 EDT
Description of problem:
There is planned rebase of RPM in RHEL5.3. The new packages come with the new subpackage named rpm-apidocs. comps need to be updated because of that. Otherwise compose won't find rpm-apidocs and therefore it's missing from the errata.
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux maintenance release. Product Management has requested
further review of this request by Red Hat Engineering, for potential
inclusion in a Red Hat Enterprise Linux Update release for currently deployed
products. This request is not yet committed for inclusion in an Update
The subackage has been pulled into last nightly compose via NPLB (No Package Left Behind) feature.
There's no need to do a comps change unless the subpackage should appear in anaconda package list.
Jindrich, does it make sense to add it to the package list in anaconda?
In this case, I'd prefer *not* to add it, since it's a docs file which wouldn't be frequently used.

Please don't add it to the list in anaconda if the anaconda guys need only the functional part. Missing rpm-apidocs won't affect a functionality of rpm and it was also one of the reasons for splitting it into a separate subpackage :)
