Setting "Depends on: bug 867282" because of this install-time dep:
Requires:       glite-jobid-api-c-devel%{?_isa}

Comment 3 Mattias Ellert 2013-05-23 12:53:24 UTC
The package review only showed one failed item, which is easy to fix.

I have one question though. Since this package only installs headers
and no libraries, why not make the package noarch? The content of the
package will be the same for all achitectures, since the only
installed file is copied without changes from the source to the
installation tree during the package build.

In a noarch package you would have to remove the use of %{?_isa} and
%{_lib} since these are ambiguous for a noarch package. But nothing in
the package really depends on these macros.

Comment 4 František Dvořák 2013-05-23 14:55:44 UTC
That's good question. I'm not sure, what will happen on multiarch systems with the -devel dependencies without %{?_isa}, and discussions in packaging list still recommend to use this macro: http://lists.fedoraproject.org/pipermail/packaging/2013-May/009136.html

On other hand using %_isa here and make the package architecture-dependent because of it is probably too much. :-)

Any opinions? (I'll probably change it to noarch?)

Koji build: http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=5432941

New packaging - the noarch package and fixed file list. It looks like the -devel dependencies in noarch packages are covered in guidelines: "...unless the generated RPMs will be noarch, -devel package dependencies on other -devel packages should be arch-specific."

Comment 6 Mattias Ellert 2013-05-28 22:16:35 UTC
