Description vadim 1999-12-20 19:44:16 UTC
something like

%package bla
%files bla


i.e. when main package information is following, doesn't seem to work. Yet
it's a very nice thing to have (if subpackage info is %included)

Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2001-02-21 18:48:51 UTC
What's really needed is the ability to include a "chunk" (i.e. another specfile)
a sub-package and have the Right Thing Happen, i.e. scriptlets merged etc.
The scoping issues with the spec file parser you point out are examples of
the problems that need to be solved.

Gonna be a PITA, can't be helped.

Changing component.

Comment 2 Stephen John Smoogen 2003-01-23 23:51:52 UTC
Does this look to be a possible rpm for the RPM-4.1/2 stage or something for a
much furhter release?

Comment 3 Jeff Johnson 2003-01-24 13:43:02 UTC
Yes, this is doable, but is still low priority.

Comment 4 Jeff Johnson 2004-02-10 19:23:23 UTC
Spec file syntax cannot be changed, de facto is all there is.
