Re: [opensuse-buildservice] Cannonical names for debs [BUG]

Ok, I think this is a real bug on the server, but just let me know if
it's some policy I'm unaware of (again ;-)):

libattr1's version in a bdep tag is 1:2.4.43

the full bdep is

<bdep arch="amd64" name="libattr1" notmeta="1" preinstall="1"
project="Ubuntu:9.10" release="3" repository="standard"
version="1:2.4.43" />

The full deb name on the server is


The same thing happens with other debs that have numbers at the end of
their names like kdelibs4-*. Somehow it's grabbing both numerical
pieces and then joining them with ':'.

Where in the obs-server or build code is the version parsed out? I can
fix it, I just don't know off hand where in the perl the parse is

Once again, the data is correct, it just doesn't match the naming scheme
for the deb package. If you look at the Version reported by dpkg --info
libattr1_2.4.43-3_amd64.deb it says:

Version: 1:2.4.43-3

I guess that means if version has a ':' in it, then the file name
calculation needs to be special cased so that the bit before the ':'
gets added to the name, while the bit after gets created as the normal

Michael, do you know if this is a standard for Versions with ':' in them
that can be safely assumed? I'm not sure how else to derive the package
filename correctly from the bdeps.

Ok, if that's the policy, that's fine then. osc still needs to be
changed to not key off of the 'release' attribute to determine the
whether to use rpm or deb format then.

debs never have releases, it's all in version, but bash's version is
4.0-5ubuntu2, so the server is miss parsing the version as a version and

The server splits it into version-release if the string contains
a '-', otherwise it sets only the version.
I think this makes sense, the upstream bash version is "4.0",
"5ubuntu2" is some release scheme from ubuntu.

This is pretty much in line with the Debian Policy Manual,
which states:

5.6.12 Version
The version number of a package.
The format is: [epoch:]upstream_version[-debian_revision]
