But as stated, no time to work on said feature. Patches > welcome :/ I say this should be taken out of individual specs as much as possible. There should be a post-transaction script hook in RPM itself, rather than the package spec, which can handle these things. Either the the package postinstall script sets some flag somehow that the script sees, or better yet, the script is provided a list of all modified/added/removed files, which it can simply grep through, and make decisions like "Something changed in /usr/share/icons, better update the cache" or "Something changed in /usr/lib, better run ldconfig". The individual packages then don't have to worry about it at all. Centralization good. Duplication bad. Don't Repeat Yourself, Once and Only Once, etc. Simplification of specs, also good.
