RFE: make the line lenght limit configurable
Last modified: 2009-10-03 15:05:39 EDT
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.
Already done upstream:
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.
rpmlint-0.91-1.fc11 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 11.
rpmlint-0.91-1.fc11 has been pushed to the Fedora 11 testing repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
