Description Bill Nottingham 1999-01-19 11:29:44 EST
When doing final packaging, rpm
reports 'Bad owner/group: $file' for a file
that has a numeric owner/group even if there
is a %defattr that overrides the owner/group
for that file.

This behavior worked in rpm-2.5.

I believe this is now fixed in rpm-2.91.
