Description Dams 2003-05-08 00:01:34 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.7 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20030131

Description of problem:
It would be fair to have a default user-defined epoch and a default user-defined
release tag for new spec file.
Please look at the (short) patch against the rpm-spec-mode.el file.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. emacs &
2. C-x C-f foo.spec RET

Actual Results:  For the release tag : 
Release: 1
and no epoch tag.

Additional info:

Release tag to have the rpm-spec-default-release value instead of "1".
Mandrake packagers could have 1mdk, fedora packagers "0.fdr.1", Matthias Saou
from freshrpms.net fr1, etc.. whatever. Useful thing. (i think).

Comment 2 Jens Petersen 2003-05-08 04:46:31 UTC
I agree about default release, but the need for a default epoche seems
more dubious to me (epoches should be avoided as far as possible).
At least I don't think epoche should be included when there isn't a default.

(Btw I prefer unified diffs ("diff -u").)

Please send your patch to the maintainer of rpm-spec-mode.el:
Stig Bjørlykke <stigb@tihlde.org>, so that he can include it
in the next release.
