Bug Description

% ./tools/run-container centos/8 --package --artifacts=.
% rpm -U cloud-init-20.2+89.g818da27a-1.el8.noarch.rpm
Command: rpm -U /tmp/cloud-init-20.2+89.g818da27a-1.el8.noarch.rpm
Exit code: 1
Reason: -
Stderr: error: Failed dependencies:
                 python3-devel is needed by cloud-init-20.2+89.g818da27a-1.el8.noarch
                 sudo is needed by cloud-init-20.2+89.g818da27a-1.el8.noarch

python3-devel has to be a build-dep;
sudo is require though.

Hi Ryan,

This happens because `tools/read-dependencies --distro` joins the 'requires' and 'build-requires' defined in pkg-deps.json, the file that specifies the distro-specific deps. See this line specifically:


This doesn't happen when building the .deb package because we let debhelper calculate the dependencies, and packages/bddeb doesn't need to touch the Depends: line.

In order to avoid the odd dependencies I don't see other way than making read-dependencies distinguish between build-deps and runtime-deps.

RFC: We could add --runtime-only-deps to read-dependencies. When this is specified the build-requires from pkg-deps.json won't be appended to the list of dependencies. Then packages/brpm will have to be taught about this, looks easy at first glance.

I think we want two flags; keep the default behavior of all deps output: and then

--build-requires # print the build package requirements
--requires # print the runtime package requirements

Then brpm needs to be updated to call read-deps with those two flags, and adjust its build-requires and requires accordingly.
