It's not time for an April's fool! I have the same package installed,
and it's all plain text, both by inspection as by executing the
"file" command:

"rpm -q rpm": rpm-4.4.2-46.fc7

Comment 2 Mario Torre 2007-06-30 19:13:41 UTC

The files contains some LaTex controls.
For examples, "triggers" contains:

/*! \page triggers Trigger scriptlets            [line 1]


\subsection triggers_example A Simple Example    [line 10]


\verbatim                                        [line 23]
        1) sendmail is installed
        2) vmail is installed
        3) sendmail is removed
        4) vmail is removed

and so on.

The files are perfectly readable, though.

Comment 3 VnPenguin 2007-07-01 07:14:01 UTC
Yes, LaTeX/TeX sources are ... plain text too. So they are READABLE.
But I think this is definitively a bug of Packager ! because LaTeX is created
for compiling, NOT for reading as a document of RPM package.

Comment 4 Panu Matilainen 2007-07-03 12:18:14 UTC
The docs have some resemblance to LaTeX sources but they're nowhere near valid
LaTeX. Turning them into valid LaTeX would of course be possible, but that'd
reduce the plain-text readability quite a bit, and as the current set of docs
are just assorted bits about this and that, forming a "real document" out of
them doesn't make much sense.
