*sigh*. One justification the FPC had used for mandating a standard
buildroot was to avoid the waste of time associated with endless debates on
mailing lists and package reviews. So much for that plan. (:
The "standard" buildroot plan is a good plan, as long as the goal
involves ripping it out from all spec files once and for all (i.e. have
a sane default set for rpmbuild).
I keep repeating this, sorry, but am I the only one who'd like to see
all useless and repetitive stuff taken out of spec files?
- The "-q" to %setup
- BuildRoot cleanup when %install and %clean start
- %defattr(-,root,root,-) or %defattr(-,root,root,0755)
For now, I do find it silly to add the 'id' execution to the buildroot.
And I avoid doing silly things when they relate to serious matters :-)
