Description Aaron Sherman 2005-11-09 20:01:46 UTC
Description of problem:

rpm verify output has undocumented "C" field.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

I've verified this under FC3 and FC4, but I first saw the behavior under FC3.

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. unpack RPM source
2. look at lib/verify.c line 362
3. compare that against the "VERIFY OPTIONS" section of doc/rpm.8
Actual results:

There is no documentation for the "C" field.

Expected results:

Since the output is cryptic to begin with, documentation for every possible
value is critical.
