Description Bruno Wolff III 2007-06-02 12:29:51 EDT
Description of problem:
After a fresh install running rpm -V shows /etc/sgml/docbook-simple.cat as being
changed. Since it isn't marked as a config file this makes one worry when
checking the integrity of the system using rpm -V.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm --force -U docbook-simple-1.0-2.1.1.noarch.rpm
2. rpm -V docbook-simple
Actual results:
S.5....T   /etc/sgml/docbook-simple.cat

Expected results:
No files being flagged.

Additional info:
docbook-slides has the same problem with /etc/sgml/docbook-slides.cat .
Comment 1 Ondrej Vasik 2007-10-23 11:13:39 EDT
I think this issue is not necessary to be fixed in current release, I will fix
this with %config(noreplace) of those catalog files, because I'm now doing
rpmlint checks of docbook packages. Moving version to DEVEL, this issue will be
fixed during rpmlint corrections.
Comment 2 Ondrej Vasik 2007-10-24 10:39:12 EDT
rpmlint corrections done, built as docbook-simple-1.1-2.fc9 , file is marked as
configuration, is modified in %post (workaround of some older bug). If the mark
as configuration file is not enough for you, there will be necessary some
changes to fix the old bug some other way. I prefer to keep it like that.
Closing RAWHIDE.
Note: With docbook-slides-3.4.0-2.fc9 it is the same.
Comment 3 Bruno Wolff III 2007-10-24 13:59:05 EDT
That seems like a reasonable compromise. While it isn't a normal config file, it
does make it so when you see the file has changed, that it is less worrisome.
