Description Eskil Heyn Olsen 2001-01-18 23:04:19 UTC
when using `rpm --percent`, the "%% xx\n" lines are not flushed. This makes
the feature almost useless for parsing from non-tty programs, as progress
is read in jerks making eg. progress bars based on this feature real ugly
and a bad userexperience.
