At least in RHEL5 you can build an RPM where the Source points to a directory instead of an archive file (tar, etc), thus removing the need for the %setup macro. Is this a feature or a "feature" (read bug) ?Sounds like a "feature", certainly. Try building a src.rpm from such a thing, it'll merrily include the empty source directory as a source (or patch).That is what I was thinking but wanted to gather input about it before filing a bug.
Yup. Note that while adding a sanity check for regular file does make sense, it doesn't prevent anything but accidental abuse. Use of %setup or Source/Patch is in no way required for any spec, and %prep, %build and %install can technically do pretty much whatever they please - things pull content from the internet, copy stuff from system or otherwise pre-existing directories etc in any case.
