Date: Mon, 12 Jan 2015 03:23:56 +0300 From: Solar Designer <solar@...nwall.com> To: owl-dev@...ts.openwall.com Subject: db-5.3.28 (in rpm package) Galaxy, Trying to verify db-5.3.28.tar.xz, I compare it against the upstream file mentioned in the comment in rpm.spec (thanks!) and I see these additions and changes: db-5.3.28/dist/Makefile.in | 3 db-5.3.28/dist/aclocal.m4 |only db-5.3.28/dist/aclocal/libtool.m4 |10503 +++++++++-------------- db-5.3.28/dist/aclocal/noop.m4 |only db-5.3.28/dist/autom4te.cache |only db-5.3.28/dist/config.hin | 21 db-5.3.28/dist/config.hin~ |only db-5.3.28/dist/configure | 1484 +-- db-5.3.28/test/tcl/include.tcl | 30 This makes verification tricky/unreliable. Would it be reasonable to avoid such changes (merely remove some files, not add/change anything)? I suppose you could be making the minor changes and running autotools from our spec file, so those changes would be subject to our revision control. Also, note how in nmap.spec I describe exactly which files are removed - you could do the same in rpm.spec to make it easier and more reliable to reproduce the same changes for future upstream versions.
