As http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/RPM4.10 got accepted in
yesterday's FESCo meeting, here come the bits.
For details see http://rpm.org/wiki/Releases/4.10.0, but the bottom line
is that for business-as-usual operations you shouldn't really notice
much anything at all. Well, apart from cleanup-erasure progress being
visible if you use rpm cli instead of yum to upgrade packages.
Just watch out for anomalies and report them ... as usual.
As there's a soname bump involved, the following packages will need a
rebuild. It should be just a straightforward bump+rebuild for all these.
If a build that succeeds with rpm-4.9.x fails with rpm-4.10.x then its
likely a bug in rpm (or then the software is playing with some very dark
corners of librpm):
