Description R P Herrold 2002-05-28 10:56:44 EDT
1.  In General Options, sections --version, --rcfile and --pipe refer to 'rpm'
rather than 'rpmbuild'


2.  In General Options, section --root, is the description 'modifying', and of
%pre and %post correct?  I understand __reading__ (but not writing) the database
for purposes of satisfying a BuildRequire, but the rest seems to == NOOP.


3.  In Build Options, section --sign, it references a non-existant section
concerning GPG SIGNATURES -- it probably should point to the one in man 8 rpm .
Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2002-06-09 13:06:10 EDT
1) In this case, "rpm" is the subsystem, not the excutable
name, and these are general options.

2) and 3) Clarification added.

Now to rip the build modes out of rpm.8, sigh.
