a file conflict is two pkgs owning the same file where the file is not:

This has nasty effects with F11, because it has switched from md5 to sha256.

This kills packages which share files, but have been built on different versions of Fedora or CentOS.

One real world example, I encountered this issue with: the rpm-gpgkey package of a 3rd party repo.
