Ticket #155 (closed enhancement: fixed)
src rpm binary inclusion exception request for 'factor'
|Reported by:||codeblock||Owned by:|
|Component:||Bundled Library Exception||Version:|
I am trying to package up Factor (http://factorcode.org/) for Fedora.
To build, it bootstraps on itself, and needs what Factor calls a "boot image" as described here: http://concatenative.org/wiki/view/Factor/Building%20Factor
The Fedora packaging guidelines list an exception for "compilers or cross-compiler environments" which the Factor compiler falls into.
The exception I am referring to is located at the bottom of this section: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:Guidelines#No_inclusion_of_pre-built_binaries_or_libraries
I have the package ready for review, pending this approval.
