Yes, but no reason to worry. In case identical file names have been found
and provided that there are only a few packages which contain these files,
they can be downloaded and checked more thoroughly. A simple form to display
the checksums and more for easy parsing is:

rpm -qp --qf '[%-10{filemodes:perms} %{filemd5s} %{filenames}\n]' package.rpm

Some of rpm's query-tags can be used to give prettier output when listing
packages during package review, e.g.:

function rpmls {
    rpm -q --qf '[%-10{filemodes:perms} %{filenames}\n]' $1 $2

function rpmlsv {
    rpm -qlv $1 $2 | awk -F\  '{ print $1,substr($3,0,8),substr($3,9,8),$4,sprin
tf("%9d",$5),$9; }'
