Whitelisting rpmlint errors in Taskotron/Bodhi

If you submit a new Fedora update into Bodhi, you’ll see an Automated Tests tab on that update page (an example), and one of the test results (once it’s done) will be from rpmlint. If you click on it, you’ll get a full log with rpmlint output.

If you wish to whitelist some errors which are not relevant for your package or are clearly a mistake (like spelling issues, etc), it is now possible. The steps how to do this are described at:

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Taskotron/Tasks/dist.rpmlint#Whitelisting_errors

This has been often requested, so hopefully this will help you have the automated tests results all in green, instead of being bothered by invalid errors. If something doesn’t work, and it seems to be our bug in how we execute rpmlint (instead of a bug in rpmlint itself), please file a bug in task-rpmlint or contact us (qa-devel mailing list, #fedora-qa IRC channel on Freenode).
