I'd like something a bit more intrusive than a warning.  What I'd like to see 
is:
 1. package maintainer does its business and submits a build request
 2. plague does the build, runs rpmlint, checks the provides,
    checks the warnings
 3. if there are no diffs, succeed
 4. if there are diffs, fail and report the diffs
 5. at this point, maintainer has to scan the diffs and make a decision:
   A. the diffs are inocuous -> update the reference files and resubmit the 
      build
   B. the diffs expose a problem -> back to step 1.

Community will see the updates to the reference files and can comment where 
needed...

I think this would be a pretty nice and easy QA improvement.

Cheers,
					Christian
