View Full Version : SLES 12 SP3 interpreting the commit messages from an RPM's changelog

I recently updated the systemd RPM on my SLES12 SP3 machine, and wanted to review the changes:


rpm --changelog -q systemd

The changelog seems quite detailed, but I'm trying to correlate the misc messages/ IDs numbers to some bug database / git repo / whatever, so I can see what's addressed.

For example:


* Mon Apr 29 2019 fbui@suse.com
- Import commit f35c6dc530aa46d1ed68cc9d191c790474049f8e

I think that's a git commit number. But, when I try to search across all of github for that commit ID, I can't find any hits:


https://github.com/search?q=272393c&type=Commits

What are these bsc numbers?


fc332d83ad core: only watch processes when it's really necessary (bsc#955942 bsc#1128657)

What's a jsc number?


- systemd-coredump: generate a stack trace of all core dumps (jsc#SLE-5933)

etc. There are many mysterious tags, and I'm trying to track down if any of the applied changes pertain to symptom's I'm seeing.

Thanks in advance...

Hi
The jsc# is an internal reference, bsc# is a SUSE bug report (which may/maynot be visible) https://bugzilla.suse.com, others can be seen here;
https://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Packaging_Patches_guidelines

That commit would be in this case a systemd one.
