Re: RFC: fedora.us QA approval format

Hi Patrice,

Could you clarify that ? I thought the srpm could only contain the sources
and the spec file, without paths. Can it be different ?

Right now, you get to look at the spec file after the sources check. Then
you can paste the url in you browser and check the location.

Packages in the non-us section of fedora.us are at rpm.livna.org (usualy,
the problem is software patents or DMCA). This is equivalent to non-us in
Debian and PLF in Mandrake. They use a bugzilla at bugzilla.livna.org and
have the same procedure as fedora.us

Thanks for you support !
