Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:53 EST
Description of problem:
Some packages ships man pages with execute bit set, rpmlint don't
detect this error:
$ rpm -ql ed | grep /usr/share/man | xargs ls -dl
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 7059 2006-11-13 13:44 /usr/share/man/man1/ed.1.gz
$ rpm -V ed
$ rpm -q rpmlint
$ rpmlint ed
W: ed summary-ended-with-dot The GNU line editor
E: ed zero-length /usr/share/doc/ed-0.3/TODO
Could a test for this be added to rpmlint?
