If this is the same thought as past discussions, the whitelist is per
package.  I make a build.  The rpms are run through rpmlint.  The issues
reported are compared against the previous build's rpmlint.  If there
are problems not previously whitelisted, the rpm is not pushed to the
repo until the maintainer somehow adds the warnings to the whitelist or
updates the spec so it no longer causes the error. (Maybe it's filling
in a reason and submitting it to the packageDB.  Maybe it's a specially
formatted comment in the spec file.  I don't know how people would want
to implement the feature.)

So there's no waiting on the rpmlint maintainer.  This could also be
interesting as it would let the rpmlint maintainer/author see which of
the rpmlint tests are causing the most false positives.
