Removing noise from specs




Reminded by Bill's suggestion of putting the default buildroot into rpm default macro configuration instead of having to set in each and every spec, here's another long time wish of mine:

Have rpm default to %defattr(-,root,root,-) in %files section(s). It's the right thing for most packages so it's really just noise in 90% of the specs, it's an endless source of silly packaging mistakes (forgetting to add it when splitting off a subpackage etc) and those who need special permissions can set them with their own %defattr/%attr use.

Pretty please?
