Comment 2 Daniel Mach 2008-07-07 07:31:28 EDT
Does this apply also for other variants or is it WS only issue?

I'd like to close it as WONTFIX, since it's a minor glitch and redhat-release is
not (and will never be) a multilib package.
Comment 3 Alexander Todorov 2008-07-07 07:47:19 EDT
Seems like other variants have the new lines correct. Only WS has additional new
line for x86_64.

WONTFIX is not acceptable for QE. This is an easy fix and not fixing it will
results in unnecessary rpmdiff warnings which QE has to inspect manually and
waive every time. If redhat-release is never meant to be multilib just fix the
new line so that the multilib test case in rpmdiff reports the correct result.
Do not try to work around the problem please.

4.8 is OK for QE though.
