Description Thomas Ribbrock 2000-02-13 20:05:39 EST
rpm 3.0.3 seems to expand macros within comments. Example:

Having the following two lines

# User-Defined Macros:
# %define <name> <expansion>

in a spec file will lead to an error message:
"Macro % has illegal name (%define)"

This was working ok in rpm 3.0 and 3.0.2.
