Bad URL: for gzip in 'rpm -q -i'
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:38:21 EDT
Description of Problem: Broken URL after version fork
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): gzip-1.3-15
How Reproducible: 'rpm -q gzip' and 'rpm -q -i gzip'
Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -q gzip and note the 'gzip-1.3-'
2. rpm -q -i gzip and note the 'URL: http://www.gzip.org'
3. Visit http://www.gzip.org which still has 1.2.4a
Actual Results: 'rpm -q -i' says the URL: for gzip is http://www.gzip.org
Expected Results: The URL should point at someplace that supports gzip 1.3,
as www.gzip.org still is at 1.2.4a.
Additional Information: It's unclear why the 1.3 fork was created, but the
URL: should point someplace that is actually supporting it. if gzip.org
isn't supporting 1.3, you shouldn't be pointing to it.
The URL to the source in the package is given in the "source" entry on the spec
file - the URL you refer to is to the homepage of the project.
