rpm %verify



Hello,

I have 2 bugzillas asking for %verify to be added to %config files. I am 
wondering if this is a good idea at all. The issue is that if you wanted to 
verify whether or not config files have changed, then this causes you to lose 
that ability. Adding --noscript to the verify command does not make rpm 
suddenly report the issues it was hiding. Does this mean that rpm is not 
working right? Or does this mean that we cannot use rpm for integrity checking 
for any package that has %verify attributes for config files?

Thanks,
-Steve

PS - Anyone wanting to experiment can use the setup package and change the 
/etc/hosts file to verify what I am saying.
