Description Vít Ondruch 2014-01-24 14:16:05 UTC
For better support of depending collections, it would be cool if scl-utils could provide some macro support for the idea bellow, to remove the repetitive work.

scl depending collections
- split %scl into %scl_name_base, %scl_name_version
- each metapackage has subpackage named "scldevel"
- this package is added into minimal buildroot by relengs
- this subpackage must contain macros.%{scl_name_base}-scldevel that must contain:

cat >> %{buildroot}%{_root_sysconfdir}/rpm/macros.%{scl_name_base}-scldevel << EOF
%%scl_%{scl_name_base} %{scl}
%%scl_prefix_%{scl_name_base} %{scl_prefix}

- the macros.%{scl_name_base}-scldevel files must conflict between all %{scl_name_base} collections. This disallows installation of multiple versions of %{scl_name_base} collections (e.g. ruby193-scldevel can't be installed side by side with ruby200-scldevel):

%package scldevel
Summary: Package shipping development files for %scl
%description scldevel
Package shipping development files, especially usefull for development of
packages depending on %scl Software Collection.

- Usage
Everything bellow belongs into metapackage of dependent collection

# This is optional. Can be replaced by %{?scl_prefix_ruby}. It is just hint,
# that the collection was designed with ruby200 in mind. If buildroot has no
# special settings (i.e. there is explicitely not available different -scldevel
# package), the BuildRequires pulls in ruby200-scldevel.
%{!?scl_ruby:%global scl_ruby ruby200}
%{!?scl_prefix_ruby:%global scl_prefix_ruby %{scl_ruby}-}

# Always BR -scldevel package. That way you ensure that -scldevel packag is in
# buildroot and the default values are actually not in use. When this package
# would be omitted, it might result in broken requires, which could be
# discoverred just by build of subsequent packages.
BuildRequires: %{scl_prefix_ruby}scldevel

%package runtime
Summary: Package that handles %scl Software Collection.
Requires: scl-utils
Requires: %{scl_prefix_ruby}runtime

%package build
Summary: Package shipping basic build configuration
# This ensures availability of macros in every package of collection.
Requires: %{scl_prefix_ruby}scldevel

Sounds like an interesting and doable idea, I will look into it.

This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database.  Reassigning to the new owner of this component.

Comment 6 Fedora End Of Life 2016-07-19 10:55:03 UTC
Fedora 22 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2016-07-19. Fedora 22 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.

Comment 7 Vít Ondruch 2016-07-19 12:17:20 UTC
We are using this approach for SCLs already, but it would be nice to have better support in scl-utils, since this is just boilerplate for every collection.
