Description manuel wolfshant 2006-10-20 23:58:48 UTC
Spec URL:
Description: Whereas mv can rename (as opposed to move) only one file at a time,
ren can rename many files according to search and replacement
patterns, ala VMS and MS-DOS (but better). ren checks for replacement name
collisions and handles rename chains (1 goes to 2 goes to 3 etc.)

This is a duplicate of already reviewed and approved bug , resubmitted in order to change the reporter.

The src.rpm isn't reachable. 

A comment, still not a blocker is that you should split your changelog
entry at 80 columns. Can be done after importing to cvs.

* rmlint is silent
* licence is not explicitely set, however since it comes from
  a post on usenet with explicit permission to reuse and redistribute
  this may be considered public domain.
* follow guidelines
* match upstream
