Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 558048
Last modified: 2010-01-23 09:01:08 EST
Description of problem:
I would like to package http://ftp.wl0.org/rpmdiff/
for fedora but the program name conflicts with rpmdiff from rpmlint...
Any suggestions on how to handle this:
I dunno how widely rpmlint's rpmdiff is used.
Personally I don't find the output so useful.
rpmlint's rpmdiff has been around for $a_long_time, and is used for example AFAIK in some Fedora/Red Hat infrastructure and/or build systems (koji?).
Before packaging the rpmdiff you mentioned, I suggest taking a look at rpmdev-diff(1) from rpmdevtools, it has a similar feature set and more. The only thing missing seems to be package metadata diffing, I'll look into adding that to rpmdev-diff.
