Created attachment 911425 [details] makedeltarpm.8 -l obsolete Specifying -l file, one can give a file with list of files needed to be excluded from the delta process. Nowadays it is relayed on all of those files be either marked as %config or as %verify(nomd5) in the spec files. Thus, this option is obsolete.
