As is my tradition when a bug is found, I try and publish a little something extra as a mea cupla. Due to limited "free time", the "mea culpa" enhancement this time is quite minor but worth mentioning anyway. In past versions, there was no interface to change the information collection rules of the tool. If you wanted to disable the collection of certain types of information (such as package names or dependencies) you had to go into the code and change the relevent COLLECT_ variable. No longer. The defaults are still the same, but now the tool will honor variable settings originating from the shell or command line as follows:
$ env COLLECT_NAMES=0 ./spc-v0.9.ksh -r /tmp/myrepository -i -l
Note that the COLLECT_ variables are only used during the creation of a repository. Not a big enhancement, but one none the less! Thank you again Jerome for discovering the bug and offering a patch!
Keep the suggestions, reports and fixes coming!
