Description Christian Krause 2008-06-28 18:25:34 UTC
Description of problem:
"rpm -V xml-common" complains about the following problem:

Package xml-common-0.6.3-23.fc9.noarch:
S.5....T  c /etc/xml/catalog
S.5....T    /usr/share/sgml/docbook/xmlcatalog

Because it is intended that /usr/share/sgml/docbook/xmlcatalog is modified
during the installation of several packages (e.g. xml-dtd), rpm -V should not
verify the time, size and md5 sum.

Similar problems existed in other packages and were solved using something like
this in the spec file:
"%ghost %verify(not size mtime md5) %{_datadir}/..."

Steps to Reproduce:

Expected results:
- no complaints about /usr/share/sgml/docbook/xmlcatalog
