1.190.1.  RHBA-2009:1089: bug fix update


This update has already been released (prior to the GA of this release) as FASTRACK errata RHBA-2009:1089
An updated redhat-rpm-config package that fixes a bug is now available.
redhat-rpm-config is a package that provides customized Red Hat macros used during the building of RPM packages. These macros replace the standard macros supplied as part of RPM itself with Red Hat specific versions.
This updated redhat-rpm-config package fixes the following bug:
  • the "brp-java-repack-jars" script was unable to correctly handle certain Java ARchive files (JAR) files. Those files would set the permissions on exploded directory hierarchies to strange permissions modes, such as "0000". With this updated package, standard user permissions are set correctly on the exploded directory hierarchy, which prevents certain errors from occurring, such as being unable to remove the directory tree when it is necessary to do so. (BZ#219706)
All users of redhat-rpm-config are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which resolves this issue.
