Description Denice 2003-03-14 05:43:40 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20021003

Description of problem:
This is picky of me, but in all of rawhide, there are only three 'dual-versioned
packages' that use the same SPEC filename for both versions of the source rpm:

 readline/readline41    --> readline.spec
 libxml/libxml2         --> libxml.spec
 slang/compat-slang     --> slang.spec

It would be nice if the name of the spec files were different in these packages,
so that you would not nuke the 1st spec file on installing the 2nd src.rpm file..

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -i libxml*src.rpm
2. look at files in SPECS

oops, I meant to set the perceived priority to low :o}
Comment 2 Daniel Veillard 2003-03-14 06:20:50 EST
Well, I understand the problem, it's doable especially since the
libxml.spec is actually generated by configure. I could then rename
it to libxml2.spec without loosing the CVS history of the spec file
in the GNOME CVS.

Comment 3 Daniel Veillard 2003-03-21 16:24:38 EST
Okay fixed upstream in GNOME CVS base. This will propagate to any
libxml2 release post 2.5.4, i.e. in 2.5.5 when available.

Comment 4 Daniel Veillard 2003-03-25 08:48:35 EST
Okay libxml-2.5.5 has been released and is being pushed to RawHide.
It uses libxml2.spec instead of libxml.spec .
You can get it from ftp://xmlsoft.org/
