I very much dislike this. Currently offical builds cannot use src.rpms,
they must use VCS. This allows us to be able to easily see what was in
a build. If we allow arbitray src.rpms it opens up a big can of worms:
- We have to store those src.rpms forever (or many years).
- Looking at what was used requires you to download a big src.rpm and
unpack it instead of looking at a git hash in a repo.
- There's much less auditing. Someone could upload a src.rpm with
horrible junk in it and the only way to tell would be to download and
So, I think thats a big no go. ;)
Otherwise this sounds like great stuff to talk to rpm upstream
