How are end users supposed to differentiate easily packages that have not been rebuild from packages that have not been updated due to E-V-R and other issues after they perform an upgrade of Fedora?

rpm -qa --last

rpm -qa --qf "%{BUILDTIME}\n"

Wading through this information to figure out the details I wanted doesn't seem to be as easy as something like

# rpm -qa | grep fc5

If we would make it easier that would be useful. Maybe some preinstalled scripts?

also... 'don't have E-V-R issues'.

That's easier said that done looking at the long list of such problems in the regular automated reports. There are the other things like missing obsoletes that can be responsible for left over packages.
