Last modified: 2017-12-14 04:17:35 EST
Description of problem:
First I'd like to thank for the awesome documentaions available.
Also +1 for the export function (PDF,html-single,...).
Looking at the packagers guide I missed some information.
It would be nice if you also tell what kind of rpm packages are out there.
What I found so far:
For example I still don't know if the debugsource is needed when using gdb for
debugging or if the debuginfo package is enough.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):Edition 18.0.1
Steps to Reproduce:
1.go to http://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/Fedora_Draft_Documentation/0.1/html/Packagers_Guide/index.html
Actual results: no description of the defferent types of rpm packages
Expected results: find description of the defferent types of rpm packages and
what they are used for/by.
Additional info: would be nice to have this
