Re: createrep question



I understand. Then let's approach this another way. Here's the patch we
made in createrepo/dumpMetadata.py:

    def arch(self):
        if self.tagByName('sourcepackage') == 1 or (
        not self.options['relaxed-sourcerpm-check'] and not
self.tagByName('sourcerpm') ):
            return 'src'
        else:
            return self.tagByName('arch')

Here's the original "if" expression:

        if self.tagByName('sourcepackage') == 1 or not
self.tagByName('sourcerpm'):

What risks are we taking by allowing binary RPMs to omit a sourcerpm
tag? Can we assume that, for workaround purposes, the sourcepackage tag
was not adequate for detecting source RPMs and, hence, the additional
test for a missing sourcerpm tag was required? I lack your broad
exposure to RPMs, so I don't know how commonly this condition occurs.

Regards,

Jack

I really cannot help you unless I can get more specific information on 
this package.

I'm not trying to be an obstacle but this is like feeling around in the 
dark.
