For quite some time bugs in ipkg-utils package (mostly in
ipkg-make-index tool) plagued image creation process in OE. Many of
them are known to old-time developers, and being (manually) worked
around. I was working on resolving them for some time, and guess now
finally have both clear picture of the issues and their interaction
with each other, and fixes for them. So, I would like to push these
fixes to mainline, and am opening this thread for review of
them, as well as to collect any other concerns about ipkg-utils.
In my list, there're 3 major issues:
1. Broken version comparison logic in ipkg-utils (note that this is
exactly ipkg-utils issues, nether bitbake nor ipkg is affected).
2. Inability of ipkg-make-index to detect packages which were updated,
while version stays the same.
3. Performance issues.
Patch for p.1 is here: http://bugs.openembedded.org/show_bug.cgi?id=2061
