I think the maintainer didn't do « fedpkg build » (or that would have
generated a build for the current branch) but instead use « koji build
It was a chain build, I think I simply managed to find an obscure bug
in fedpkg. It wasn't deliberate, I was trying to get a lot of
packages built for dependency chains.
It's still very annoying, for example:
- it's very confusing for someone looking at the repository
Yeah, I've submitted a clean build
- it totally defeats the purpose of a potential FTBFS run (trying to
build something different from what is in the distribution)
Actually in this case it doesn't, the only change was a version bump
for a rebuild. But it had the *potential* for that.
- it makes life harder for downstream consumers of Fedora who
stuff out of our Git trees
- it's generally bad for any kind of (automatic) process based on our
Yeah, it was a mistake plain and simple.
Not sure what to do about it though, issuing an update just to
synchronize the repos with Git seems overkill, but leaving them out of
sync is not right. :(
