Description of problem:
rpm --verify tetex shows a bunch of files in /usr/share/texmf/web2c/
that aren't what rpm was expecting. I think everything is fine and
rpm's expectations are wrong. These files seem to be generated when
the rpm is installed so I think rpm --verify shouldn't be checking them.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2. rpm --verify tetex
Expected Results: rpm should display nothing and exit with a 0 status.
These files seem to be generated. Should they be excluded from the rpm or is it
possible to tell rpm in the spec file that they will change?
The log files might not be necessary. The fmt files should be ignored for -V,
Log files omitted in 1.0.7-50. The .fmt files are trickier.
The bug is still present in some shape in RHEL3:
$ rpm -V tetex
$ rpm -q tetex
Those files should be marked as "%verify (not md5 mtime size)" in the
%files section to avoid the noise.
Fixed in CVS.

Really closing WONTFIX. Please fix your PM closing scripts. The spam I get every
time the script does nothing with this bug really annoys me. Thanks.
