Ticket #189 (assigned defect)
Filtering Guidelines outdated
|Reported by:||leamas||Owned by:||spot|
The filtering guidelines at http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:AutoProvidesAndRequiresFiltering is outdated. They recommend mechanisms that shouldn't really be used, and has limitations on what packages which can be filtered causing packagers to make all sorts of walk-arounds (I actually considered creating two packages from same source...)
See thread on fedora-devel: http://lists.fedoraproject.org/pipermail/devel/2012-June/169174.html
I suggest that the Filtering section is updated. Until this is done, please insert a warning about current state.
