So why would you make a change to the spec file, without bumping the
release?  Also there's an auditing GPL legal reason (IIRC) that we're
doing this now.  The bottom line is this:

Make change to a spec file.

Bump release.

Its a simple workflow that provides an audit trail that we believe will
keep us in compliance with the GPL.  force-tag is sort of nice to have I
guess, but release bumps happen all the time by everyone its not a high
barrier to get releases out.

I'm not sure what else to say, its not going to happen guys unless you can
come up with a different audit trail that will keep us in compliance with
the GPL and satisfies legal.
