boost possibly affected by F-20 unversioned docdir change
Last modified: 2013-08-12 05:32:21 EDT
boost was identified as a package possibly needing maintainer attention
due to the F-20 unversioned doc dir change. The identification is not
foolproof, it is basically this grep:
grep -E "(/doc|_docdir|_defaultdocdir).+version" *.spec
Please review your package and make the appropriate changes, if any. A
good starting point is checking the lines output by the above grep for
your specfile. For the vast majority of packages, after the changes,
the expected outcome is that documentation dirs in /usr/share/doc
should no longer contain the package version.
More information and tips:
The only matching line is a comment. I updated the comment to be in sync with unversioned docdir change.
Ok. But by the way, regarding the comment's content:
# As the %doc macro erases the target directory
This is no longer true as of rpm >= 4.9.1, http://rpm.org/ticket/836
Great, so we shouldn't need to go through the temporary directory. I'll update the boost spec.
