#247 closed task (no change needed)

rpm: Add %download_sources macro

Reported by: dmik Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: rpm Version:
Severity: low Keywords:


This is a long waited feature: automatically download sources whose URL is fully given. In particular, this is useful to build CPAN perl modules (Fedora refers to them by full URL to the source tarball). Other places where it may be useful is libc.spec that depends on archives with binaries which can't be versioned etc.

The resulting macro will go to the os2-rpm-build RPM.
