Description bvoperdf21 2013-07-16 10:59:49 EDT
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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.go to http://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/Fedora_Draft_Documentation/0.1/html/Packagers_Guide/index.html
2.read everything

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
