Just curious - when I fix little things to make a package build on a
specific OS or architecture, I don't increment PKGREVISION. My reasoning
is that if the change didn't change anything for other OSes or
architectures, and if the package didn't build on the OS/arch which is/are
affected, then nobody cares about the distinction - other people don't
need to rebuild and the people with the problem never had a package
I bring this up because lang/perl updates take AGES because of all the
things which depend on Perl. I see the last fix was just to fix Solaris on
SPARC, and nothing else, yet PKGREVISION was updated, so any automated
system or anyone who doesn't take the time to look at the commit logs
would think it needs to be updated.
What's the concensus on this?
