Description Gilbert E. Detillieux 2001-06-29 13:01:21 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.19-6.2.7 i686)

Description of problem:
There appears to be at the very least a version mismatch in the
wu-ftpd-2.6.1-16 packages, included in Red Hat 7.1.  The source tarball is
wu-ftpd-2.7.0-20010328.tar.bz2, which is not even available at the wu-ftpd
public FTP sites, suggesting this is still an early alpha release.
Probably not a good idea to include that in a production release (although
fine for rawhide and beta releases), but in any case, shouldn't the package
version number reflect that of the source code it uses?

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -qilvp
ftp://ftp.redhat.com/pub/redhat/linux/7.1/en/os/i386/SRPMS/wu-ftpd-2.6.1-16.src.rpm
2. Examine output, looking for version number on tarball.
3.
	

Actual Results:  Source tarball is wu-ftpd-2.7.0-20010328.tar.bz2.

Expected Results:  Source should be 2.6.1, as package version suggests. 
This is the current official version.

Comment 1 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-07-03 12:38:56 EDT
Yes, the tarball is taken from the CVS stable branch. It has quite a number of 
bugfixes and unstable new features don't go to the stable branch.
