Tales from the crypt: packaging horrors

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

I'm a long-time Fedora user (since the beginning) and contributor (since 2006). I'm a proven packager, sponsor and I served on the Fedora Packaging Committee for many years.

This talk will cover examples of the most egregious violations of best packaging practices I encountered in the wild personally. I will present real-life spec file excerpts, show which packaging guidelines are violated and explain how to do things properly. The audience is encouraged to bring their own examples.
