The attachment must have been scrubbed. Plus, gmail doesn't give me copies of
mail that I send to the list. Broken, broken gmail!
 Should also check the machine (sufficient), because there are
packages for example AVR and ARM that from point of view of -any are
"architecture-independence". (some "crazy" :P packages have SPARC ELFs)
 And also (I din't see the script, so i just suppose), you also need
to exactarc archives files (.a) and analize the content of each object
Thanks so much for your insight! Your guess was right; I forgot about
members of ar archives.
On second thought, I wonder if these sorts of checks should be done
They should. Two checks:
1) Is an arch=any package architecture-dependent -> error
2) Is an arch=whatever package architecture-independent -> warning
If you know python and have the time, you should write a patch against
namcap.git and mail it to Hugo. I told him once that it's a good
feature, no idea if he got to it. You can check namcap.git to see if he
did something, and check the bugtracker if there is a feature request
Yay, I just looked at the script and it is in python already, so I guess
a patch for namcap is in order
