Perhaps a more automated way to check would be to have a script that
checks for certain deprecated syntax in a RPM spec?
For example, I imagine specs with a "defattr" in their files section
likely need to be cleaned up. Or a Group tag. Or no %license macro.
This suggests that the package probably needs to be modernized and may
have other things that need to be cleaned up.
Maybe the rpmlint command could help detect some deprecated syntaxes ? It doesn't
check for missing %license macros and such, but does check for Group tags for
On a side note, what's wrong with using "defattr" in %files ? I've never
seen anything wrong with it up until now...
