please update to at least version 0.85-2 in order to be able to build the latest mingw32-filesystem on epel too.
As you could see from the very first line of the changelog quoted below, the version of rpmlint which has just been pushed in EPEL-testing includes ALL the updates that the fedora rawhide version implemented until yesterday:
* Sun Jan 25 2009 Manuel Wolfshant <wolfy at fedoraproject.org> - 0.85-1
- Sync with Fedora rawhide version 0.85-3, including
-- Sync Fedora license list as Wiki revision 1.34)
-- filter out filename-too-long-for-joliet and symlink-should-be-*
warnings in default config.
Could you please explain with more details what is the problem that you are facing (a show case proving that there is a problem would be excellent) ? Or maybe you have just been tricked by the release tag in epel (1) versus rawhide (3) ?
Please note that rpmlint in EPEL tracks to the best of my ability the version from rawhide and unless a very good reason is provided it will not implement checks which are not present over there.
Please also note that rpmlint never "disallows building", it is just a verification tool. Actual building is performed in mock and is completely independent of rpmlint.
The patch referenced in https://www.zarb.org/pipermail/rpmlint-discuss/2009-January/000684.html is already in http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/epel/testing/5/i386/rpmlint-0.85-1.el5.noarch.rpm
Please be as kind as to test it and let me know the outcome.
In this case I am going to close the bug.
wouldn't it be better if fedora and epel package version will be in sync?
I examined this. But it seemed odd to push the very first version with a -3 tag. And I did my best to add all the relevant info in the changelog.
but this cause headache for other project. eg. when i project put
BuildRequires: rpmlint >= 0.85-3
then it also has to have to split epel and fedora packages. which is a bad habbit. it'd be better for everyone to keep all branch as close together as possible. so imho it's smaller problem than start with -3 tag.
Too bad that your request came a bit too late, as I have already started with -1 and the package has already been pushed.
I suggest to use different BRs in your spec because for sure the rawhide version of rpmlint will have many more releases than the ones from EPEL.
imho the best solution can be you simple push a new build into epel where the only changes is to change to -3. it won't cause any problem for anyone and will be in sync with rawhide. on the other hand of course rawhide can higher release in future then epel.
I have just built -3.1 in plague.
hope this helps.
