Thread: interpreting the commit messages from an RPM's changelog

  1. #1

    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:


    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:Pac...hes_guidelines

    That commit would be in this case a systemd one.
