Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 56020
cpanflute uses "invalid" group Applications/CPAN
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:01 EDT
/usr/lib/rpm/cpanflute creates a .spec file with "Group:
Applications/CPAN". However according to /usr/share/doc/rpm-4.0.3/GROUPS
this is not a valid group.
Among other things, this creates problems when a cpanflute-based package is
checked for validity by some system that insists on having a "legal" group
(such as, for example, http://rhcontrib.bero.org/ ).
So edit cpanflute. The fix -- if necessary -- will be
to remove cpanflute from rpm, as it's usefulness has come and gone.
By why not change cpanflute so that future releases of rpm-build do not have
Because the value of the Group: field that should be
used is a Red Hat distro problem, not an rpm problem,
and so cannot be solved in rpm source code.
