How do we get RedHat to care about providing the source code?

Post by cndg » 2021/01/14 04:30:20

I'm more than sick of their lazy attitude to transparency and license compliance!!!

I reported this weeks ago as a bug as well - so they're actively refusing to fix this as well - it's not just a mistake.

Code: Select all

# yumdownloader --source openssl
Last metadata expiration check: 1:44:30 ago on Thu 14 Jan 2021 02:39:31 AM GMT.
No package openssl-1.1.1g-12.el8_3.src available.
Exiting due to strict setting.
Error: No package openssl-1.1.1g-12.el8_3.src available.
And:
https://centos.pkgs.org/8-stream/centos ... 4.rpm.html
=>
http://vault.centos.org/8-stream.3.2011 ... _3.src.rpm
=>
404

Everything is in git.centos.org since that is where it is built from.
CentOS 6 died in November 2020 - migrate to a new version!
Info for USB installs on http://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/InstallFromUSBkey
CentOS 5 is dead, do not use it.

And because all download links for releases are broken on git.centos.org, you have to type something like

Code: Select all

git clone --branch c8 https://git.centos.org/rpms/openssl.git
