Thank you for looking into this.
Let me explain the use-case of how I used this "option" before. I have a
script that sometimes check upstream websites for some software that I
rely on and that I have custom build to enable options that fedora may
not enable by default. If some new packages become available I want to run
a batch build job during the night to compile all new packages.
for s in *.spec
rpmbuild --clean -ba $s ||:
I used the rpmbuild --nobuild "feature" as a quick check to make sure that
all build dependencies for all packages are met without doing any actual
With the change from 4.14 -> 4.15 this no longer worked as before. I can
see that there are alternatives like "-bb --nobuild". I think my
suggestion is actually quite clean for my use-case: an option that only
runs the check build-deps part of the logic.
I hope this makes sense.
With kind regards,
