why rpmdiff return 1 when it found a diff ?

The return code 1 is used for error.

a diff is not an error

this break my worklow as trap exit on error aka exit code 1
Comment 1 Todd Zullinger 2013-06-23 20:08:25 EDT
This is the standard way that diff behaves.  To quote the diff documentation¹, "An exit status of 0 means no differences were found, 1 means some differences were found, and 2 means trouble."

I don't think there is any bug in rpmdiff following the same pattern.
