Rebuilding maven-surefire from scratch not possible
Last modified: 2016-01-31 20:56:22 EST
Description of problem:
The actual patch line for 'Patch1: 0004-Surefire-2.12-bootstrap.patch' is commented out. It is conditional on '%bootstrap' being true.
It should be unconditionally included in the src.rpm. Only the application of the patch '%patch1' should be conditional.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Patch is missing. Rebuilding from scratch is impossible.
Patch should be included in src.rpm.
Yes. You're right.
I did that because I believed everyone can download the sources from the repository, but it would be really better to fix that since the srpms are usually being imported to other distros and that could suppress any potential confusions.
Thanks for reporting.
Should be fixed now. Closing.
