This is a filetype plugin to work with rpm spec files.
Currently, this Vim plugin allows you to easily update the %changelog section in RPM spec files. It will even create a section for you if it doesn't exist yet. If you've already inserted an entry today, it will give you the opportunity to just add a new item in today's entry. If you don't provide a format string (spec_chglog_format), it'll ask you an email address and build a format string by itself.
1. How to use it spec-how-to-use-it 2. Customizing spec-customizing
The spec_chglog plugin provides a map like the following:
:map <buffer> <LocalLeader>c <Plug>SpecChangelog
It means that you may run the plugin inside a spec file by pressing your maplocalleader key (default is '\') plus 'c'. If you do not have spec_chglog_format set, the plugin will ask you for an email address to use in this edit session.
Every time you run the plugin, it will check to see if the last entry in the changelog has been written today and by you. If the entry matches, it will just insert a new changelog item, otherwise it will create a new changelog entry. If you are running with spec_chglog_release_info enabled, it will also check if the name, version and release matches. The plugin is smart enough to ask you if it should update the package release, if you have not done so.
As you should know, you can easily set a map to access any Vim command (or anything, for that matter). If you don't like the default map of <LocalLeader>c, you may just set up your own key. The following line shows you how you could do this in your vimrc file, mapping the plugin to the <F5> key:
au FileType spec map <buffer> <F5> <Plug>SpecChangelog
Note: the plugin will respect your desire to change the default mapping and won't set it.
This command will add a map only in the spec file buffers.
You can easily customize how your spec file entry will look like. To do this just set the variable "spec_chglog_format" in your vimrc file like this:
let spec_chglog_format = "%a %b %d %Y My Name <[email protected]>"
Note that "%a %b %d %Y" is the most used time format. If you don't provide a format string, when you run the SpecChangelog command for the first time, it will ask you an email address and build the spec_chglog_format variable for you. This way, you will only need to provide your email address once.
To discover which format options you can use, take a look at the strftime() function man page.
The plugin will usually insert new %changelog entry items (note that it's not the entry itself) after the existing ones. If you set the spec_chglog_prepend variable
let spec_chglog_prepend = 1
it will insert new items before the existing ones.
If you want, the plugin may automatically insert release information on each changelog entry. One advantage of turning this feature on is that it may control if the release has been updated after the last change in the package or not. If you have not updated the package version or release, it will ask you if it should update the package release for you. To turn this feature on, just insert the following code in your vimrc:
let spec_chglog_release_info = 1
Then, the first item in your changelog entry will be something like:
+ name-1.0-1cl
If you don't like the release updating feature and don't want to answer "No" each time it detects an old release, you may disable it with
let spec_chglog_never_increase_release = 1
Good luck!!
