Filter requires and provides in %setup section instead of %prep?

For me the suggested method of filtering requires and provides didn't work until I put the code into the %setup section of the SPEC file, not %prep. Shouldn't this be changed?

Protected page needs a minor edit

Section 9 as it's currently labeled has "inital-cc" instead of "initial-cc", right in the header. Hopefully, it'll be fixed before anyone uses the anchor link, which will change when corrected. -- J. Randall Owens 12:50, 2 July 2008 (UTC)

%{_docdir} specific req/prov filtering

Note it's possible to just get rpm to ignore everything under %{_docdir} by using filtering constructs in %prep such as:

# make sure doc/tests don't generate provides
# note we first filter out the bits in _docdir...
cat << \EOF > %{name}-prov
%{__perl_provides} `perl -p -e 's|\S+%{_docdir}/%{name}-%{version}\S+||'`

%define __perl_provides %{_builddir}/Catalyst-Plugin-Authentication-%{version}/%{name}-prov
chmod +x %{__perl_provides}

cat << \EOF > %{name}-req
%{__perl_requires} `perl -p -e 's|\S+%{_docdir}/%{name}-%{version}\S+||'`

%define __perl_requires %{_builddir}/Catalyst-Plugin-Authentication-%{version}/%{name}-req
chmod +x %{__perl_requires}

need to fix the line to use in the spec - moin translation error ?

The < code > bits probably were ' single quotes:

Requires: perl(:MODULE_COMPAT_%(eval "%{__perl} -V:version"; echo $version))

Add to category Perl?

Can we include a


on the page somewhere, to flag it as being part of the Perl category?

perl-sig as CC ?


Trying to add a CC of perl-sig or then this is never recognized by bugzilla as bugzilla account?

-- Try (in the pkg db as perl-sig). Chris Weyl 19:28, 8 November 2009 (UTC)
