Description Ville Skyttä 2008-09-06 04:15:14 EDT
It seems that with Rawhide rpm, not found patches do not terminate the build, they just print out an error.

With the "Patch0: not applied with %patch and Patch: not applied with %patch0" change in the new rpm, this will cause quite a few regressions and possibly security issues unless people happen to read their build logs carefully - essentially some patches just do not get applied.

One example here:

Executing command: ['bash', '--login', '-c', 'rpmbuild -bb --target x86_64 --nodeps builddir/build/SPECS/mboxgrep.spec']
/etc/profile: line 38: /bin/hostname: No such file or directory
%patch without corresponding "Patch:" tag
Building target platforms: x86_64
Building for target x86_64
Executing(%prep): /bin/sh -e /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.Kbstjz

An error is printed, but the build continues without the patch applied.  The build should IMO be terminated instead.

I don't have a Rawhide box to test with, but can reproduce locally in mock on a F-9 system.  I hacked my mock to not use --nodeps with rpmbuild -bb just to try it out, but it had no effect on this issue.

There are about 60 packages in Rawhide that are potentially affected, will post to fedora-devel about it soon.

Fixed in upstream and rawhide. Thanks for noticing.
