Git depends on subversion
Last modified: 2013-01-10 06:03:18 EST
Description of problem:
The latest update of git has brought dependency on the subversion package.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install git on a system without subversion having installed.
Subversion is installed along with git.
No subversion is installed.
The used spec file doesn't reflect the changes in the latest source code and some files, which should be in the git-svn package are actually in the perl-Git package.
$ rpm -ql perl-Git
I think what we need to do is split out a perl-Git-SVN package. I kicked off a scratch build to test some changes in that direction. I imagine I'll find some typos or bugs in my quick changes, but I'll try to get them worked out.
Yell if this seems like the wrong way to go with this.
It helps to remove the exit calls left in for debugging before trying a scratch build. :)
Other than that, I think this works well. Here's a scratch build for f17:
I committed the changes and have builds for f17 and rawhide in progress.
