Description D.L. Meyer 2008-05-27 22:10:21 UTC
In the 3.2.0rc1 source tarball, the packaging/RHEL/ directory contained makerpms.sh.tmpl and samba.spec.tmpl, but these files do not have version information. 

To proceed with the build, I had to manually copy the template files as makerpms.sh and samba.spec, respectively.   Then I had to edit them and place the version/revision info into place after figuring out (from previous samba releases) what went where.

The gist of my edits is in this patch fragment:

I don't think this is a bug. I generated the correct .sh and .spec files by executing:

../bin/update-pkginfo 3.2.0 1 ''

This could be more intuitive though. Perhaps a symbolic link to update-pkginfo or reading some of the version information from the other files in the tarball?
Comment 2 Karolin Seeger 2008-09-05 03:33:36 UTC
Sorry, I did not run the update-pkginfo script before creating the tarball.
Will be fixed in the following releases.
Closing out bug report.
