Description Reza Mohammadi 2007-02-04 19:03:26 UTC
Description of problem:
not suitable DistRegex setted in /usr/share/rpmlint/config

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

line 8 of /usr/share/rpmlint/config :
setOption("DistRegex", '\.(fc|rhe?l)\d+(?=\.|$)'

This regex doesn't match el as dist tag.

rpmlint isn't included in the RHEL 5 beta. Please file a bug report with the distribution or upstream that 
you downloaded the package from so that they can the correct dist tag.

I'm changing the resoluton of this to CANTFIX because we don't ship that package.

Comment 2 Roozbeh Pournader 2007-02-12 16:02:16 UTC
Re-opening bug. This should have been filed against Fedora Extras, not RHEL. See

Comment 3 Ville Skyttä 2007-02-12 16:25:13 UTC
Coincidentally (I didn't see this bug before now), this should have been fixed
in 0.79-1.fc*, shipped 1½ weeks ago in the Fedora Extras package.

But this is about the EPEL version (not Fedora Extras) so getting the fix to the
EPEL repo is a for whoever maintains rpmlint in EPEL to decide.  Reassigning to
Dennis who apparently created the rpmlint EL-5 branch.

Dennis, FYI: Bugzilla doesn't have a el5 version for EPEL at all, and rpmlint is
missing from the el4 version too.  Please add rpmlint to owners.epel.list.

Comment 4 Ville Skyttä 2007-02-25 16:41:46 UTC
Reassigning to current EPEL rpmlint maintainer.

Comment 5 Thorsten Leemhuis 2007-03-04 08:33:09 UTC
build rpmlint-0_79-1_el4 for EL4
