Summary0014782: CPack fails when install file/dir path has '@'
Descriptionpatch " [^] fixed install path with double '@' problem. This patch is merged in CMake (not sure other 2.8.12 and
But in CMake generating RPM changed to use @CPACK_RPM_INSTALL_FILES@ instead of expansion of ${CPACK_RPM_INSTALL_FILES@} in earlier cake version. These combination makes install path with '@' no longer works.

One of simple fix is just remove the patch in <CAMKE_HOME>/Modules/CPackRPM.cmake in 2.8.12.x.
Our company provide some crucial products in Big Data area for both Open Source and Enterprise users.
This bug breaks our builds on any systems with CMake (possible CMake 2.8.12 or later).

We can handle it in our internal build systems now but it will be hard to community users who want to compile our code on their own environment.

It will be appreciated if this bug can be fixed in the future CMake release.
Steps To ReproduceFor build RPM base package and have install path with '@'. It can be reproduced on CMake (probably 2.8.12 or later)

The patch in question is:

 CPackRPM protect '@' character in filename processed in the spec file.;a=commitdiff;h=1703e069 [^]

I've tested CPackRPM with @ characters on different locations in the paths and I'd say that this patch is no longer needed and is only causing invalid path expansion (@ symbols are not replaced recursively so no need for this patch).

I'll remove the patch and the problem should be fixed.
