Well, the script just detects issues, it doesn't change the specfiles.

I haven't written any scripts which modify specfiles, only scripts which
find issues. And in any case:
Besides... this is git. And rawhide. If I broke something seriously
then I or any maintainer or any provenpackager can revert the commit.
Really, if we just waited until every spec maintainer had a chance to
ack every script that's used to modify packages, there would be no point
in ever trying to do automated cleanup. Sorry, but my work with Fedora
will be aimed towards progress, not sitting around not changing anything
for fear of potentially breaking something.
The removals of %defattr that I did a few hours ago were done by hand,
not scripted. I don't doubt that there's a reasonable chance that I
could have screwed up one or two out of nearly 2700 packages. That's
Oh, and I did not modify the package %changelog sections, or change
Release:. That would be pointless; the change is of course tracked in
git, but as it makes no difference at all to the generated package,
there is no point in it receiving a changelog entry. If you really want
to add one, be my guest.
