Description Valdis Kletnieks 2001-11-19 16:48:33 EST
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.
Comment 1 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2001-11-19 18:14:44 EST
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.
