Description Eduard Benes 2008-02-21 08:50:05 EST
Description of problem:
The config file for audit does not have a %verify section in the .spec file 
telling the rpm to skip any mtime (md5, size) issues with the file when a user 
runs with --verify. Or is there a reason why we do not want to have it for 
auditd.conf file? 

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

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -V audit
Actual results:
$ rpm -V audit
.......T c /etc/audit/auditd.conf

Expected results:
No rpm verfify issues on /etc/audit/auditd.conf

I didn't know this was a requirement, so I haven't ever thought about it. Are
there any packages that do this that I could look at?

After discussing this on Fedora-devel mail list, I do not think its a good idea to purposely hide rpm's ability to detect changed config files. Especially for security packages.
