Description Orion Poplawski 2007-01-23 20:26:28 UTC
Whenever the octave api changes, all packages built against octave need to get
rebuilt, but this is currently not detected until someone runs the application.
 The attached patch add the octave(api) provides so that packages built against
octave can require a certain version and changes can be detected by repo closure.

Packages built against octave can then use:

%{!?octave_api: %define octave_api %(octave-config -p API_VERSION || echo 0)}

Requires:       octave(api) = %{octave_api}

to explicitly state their requirement.

Comment 2 Quentin Spencer 2007-02-20 18:02:17 UTC
I have just rebuilt the devel branch of octave with this feature added. I
haven't yet decided whether to add this to FC-6 or FC-5 branches, but I'll add a
notification here if I do.
