I actually had a couple of hours without having to go to a meeting or
be on a conference call, so I started looking at the open BZ's on
mock. BZ #196930 has been partially addressed by updating the
buildsys-build specfile and generating binary RPMS for each supported
distro. The remaining items are:
1. Adding a config_opts['runuser'] = '/bin/su' for FC cfg files.
2. Potentially adding an RHL 8 cfg file
3. Potentially including the buildsys-build.spec in the mock binary RPM
I think #1 is a no brainer and will commit changes to CVS in a bit.
The second part gave me a bit of pause. It was easy enough to copy the
RHL9 cfg file to an RHL8 one and mangle the paths, but I hesitate to
actually ship a file with a URL which implies that Fedora Legacy
supports it. My though was to remove the Fedora Legacy host from the
URL and insert <fill in your URL here> in the yum repo specifications.
That way it should be painfully obvious that it's not supported by
Fedora Legacy and that there's Some Assembly Required(tm).
For number 3, I don't have a problem including the buildsys-build
specfile in the mock package for people to use, but I wondered if we
do, where should we put it? /usr/share/doc/mock? /etc/mock? /var/lib/mock?

Now that mock on the Extras builders was updated to 0.6 (thx dgilmore
for your work) we noticed that there are big problems building Extras
packages for FC3 and FC4. For details see this thread:
The problem is well know and described in #196930 -- opened by Paul
Howarth on 2006-06-27
We really should fix this as soon as possible. That means:
- add elfutils to the default buildroot in all Fedora Dists < FC5
- add python to the default buildroot in FC3 and FC4
Everyone (especially fedora-packaging) fine with that? I'd like to see
this fixed soon and would like to avoid waiting for the next meetings.
If yes: can somebody (skvidal) please apply this patch:
and update http://buildsys.fedoraproject.org/buildgroups/ please?
The patch does what's described above and also fixes the default
buildroots for older dists (see patch for details).
