#7956 Some packages seem to be stuck at old versions in rpm-specs-latest.tar.xz
Closed: Fixed a year ago by kevin. Opened a year ago by scfc.

I noticed that https://src.fedoraproject.org/repo/rpm-specs-latest.tar.xz contains some spec files that do not correspond to their package's master branch, for example kde-settings.

There are a number of spec files from last year and older:

As the mass rebuild should update (almost) each spec file every six months, perhaps a check could be added that tests whether there are any spec files (apart from shim.spec?) older than nine (?) months.

Well, we should just figure out why it's not got the newest ones and fix that. :)

ok. I fixed the ked ones... they had 0 length git configs in the checkout seed, so it wasn't updating them. I think this might have been caused by some out of disk condition or something.

conakry-fonts - looks like it just didn't get rebuilt. I am not sure why, perhaps mass rebuild script missed it.

python-django-picklefield - not properly retired. Needs to be unmarked in pdc so we can push to it and dead.packaged.

erlang-p1_xmlrpc - another improperly retired one.

bcg729 - fixed.

shim - a package that doesn't rebuild much

truecommons-parent - alive, no idea why it didn't get picked up in last mass rebuild.

uimaj - ditto

nodejs-jshint - wasn't retired properly, done now.

python3-zope-interface - improperly retired. fixed.

@mohanboddu could you retire python-django-picklefield and erlang-p1_xmlrpc as they need pdc tweaked first...

Both are retired for master.
