Here is the procedure for proposing changes to the guidelines. Simply commenting here may not do any good.

Contents

[edit] Broken internal links

Exceptions is used as an id to an <a> tag twice, and as a result, the two different links to #Exceptions (which should be different) do not work properly.

Typo fix: Packaging:NamingGuidelines#Package_Versioning should be used instead of Packaging:NamingGuidelines#Package_Version


Look for string ",so" and change it to ".so".

[edit] libs subpackages

Should there be some info on naming / reasons for having -libs subpackages in here somewhere?

[edit] Layout update.

In "Packaging Static Libraries" Could we get a layout update so that the points 1 and 2 both start on new lines.

[edit] Patch Upstream Status

Is this a Guideline? I guess so, because it is in the Packaging Namespace, but it is only linked from PackageMaintainers/CreatingPackageHowTo

Noticed Packaging/Guidelines#tags has 2 broken links to www.rpm.org

[edit] Versioned Requires

Guideline states Second, the Epoch must be listed when adding a versioned dependency to achieve robust epoch-version-release comparison. A quick way to check the Epoch of package foo is to run:

rpm --query --qf "%{EPOCH}\n" packagename 

However, if this returns (null), the package has no epoch. Therefore Requires: cannot include an epoch.
