Description Karel Volný 2009-09-07 10:42:23 UTC
Description of problem:
I refer to bug #517875 comment #2 -

"... rpmlint currently has a hardcoded max line length of 79, I'll make it configurable for the next upstream version."

So I file this bug to track this.

Comment 1 Ville Skyttä 2009-09-07 17:22:09 UTC
Already done upstream:
http://rpmlint.zarb.org/cgi-bin/trac.cgi/changeset/1632

I suppose the default should be changed to 80 for Fedora (the guidelines have some hints about this) even though I personally think 79 would be better for compatibility with a few more things and readability.
