Subject Proposal: R-T-C and packaging files
Date Sun, 23 Jan 2005 14:28:46 GMT
Hi all,

There has been an ongoing problem with httpd and system package build 
scripts. Over time, changes have been backported to the build system 
(autoconf, etc) which breaks packaging scripts and files such as the RPM 
spec file.

The packaging files are then fixed, but the backport sits in the STATUS 
file without enough votes to move it forward, and eventually a release 
is made with broken packaging.

What I propose is that changes to packaging files (such as 
build/rpm/, build/pkg/, etc) should be CTR, just 
as documentation files are. This will not apply if other files (source 
code for example) are involved in the change.
