Description Göran Uddeborg 2010-05-30 10:27:39 UTC
Description of problem:
The rocksndiamonds package contains a number of files with a .orig suffix.  I guess these are the original version of files that have been modified in the packaging.  And that only the corresponding file without the .orig suffix really is used.  In that case, these files shouldn't really be packaged as part of the RPM.

This is the list of files I found:

Comment 1 Bug Zapper 2011-06-02 12:47:57 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 13 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 13.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '13'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 13's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 13 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here:

Comment 2 Göran Uddeborg 2011-06-02 16:10:33 UTC
A repoquery shows these files to still be around in rocksndiamonds- in Fedora 15.

Comment 3 Tom "spot" Callaway 2011-06-02 17:14:20 UTC
This is fixed in rawhide now, I don't think this merits updates for stable branches.

Comment 4 Göran Uddeborg 2011-06-02 17:28:48 UTC
I agree with that.
