Description Jos Vos 2002-11-15 10:17:01 UTC
Description of Problem:
The NoSource tag doesn't accept more than one number ("NoSource: 0,1" or
"NoSource: 0 1" both say "Bad number: 0, 1" resp. "Bad number: 0 1"). The
workaround is to use multiple NoSource tags, but in case you have 10 source
elements, this is a bit inconvenient...

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
4.1-1.06 (problem also occurs in older versions, RH 7.2 and 7.3).

How Reproducible:
See the attached spec file.  Touch two files testing.txt and testing.init in the
SOURCES directory and use the spec file, then the problem occurs.

Oops, this spec file has two NoSource tags, change them to one line with
"NoSource: 0, 1" and the problem will occur.
