Re: important output text at rpm install completion

Circa 2003-01-30 12:35:24 -0500 dixit Jeremy Portzer:

: Another option, such as what Red Hat does with the "mailman" rpm, is to
: put information in the package description.  The package description is
: a little more likely to be seen than echo'ing something from %post,
: although obviously there are no guarantees.

Beware, however: If you're replacing a "standard" Red Hat package with
your own, and the user has the 'specspo' package installed (which
contains internationalized package descriptions and summaries), then
rpm will display the summary or description from the specspo database
in preference to the one contained in the package.
