           Summary: wrong verify options in rpm package for fonts.dir
           Product: Fedora
           Version: f8
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: low
          Priority: low
         Component: fonts-KOI8-R
        AssignedTo: than at redhat.com
        ReportedBy: chkr at plauener.de

Description of problem:

the integrity check for the fonts-KOI8-R-* packages reports modified files:

"rpm -V fonts-KOI8-R-1.0-10.fc8 fonts-KOI8-R-100dpi-1.0-10.fc8
S.5....T   /usr/share/fonts/KOI8-R/misc/fonts.dir
S.5....T   /usr/share/fonts/KOI8-R/100dpi/fonts.dir
S.5....T   /usr/share/fonts/KOI8-R/75dpi/fonts.dir

Although this is not a big problem, rpm -V should not report changes in files
which are changed automatically on purpose (like fonts.dir, ...).

Other font packages have solved the problem e.g. using something like this in
the %files section (

%verify(not md5 size mtime) %{fontdir}/fonts.dir
%verify(not md5 size mtime) %{fontdir}/fonts.scale

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
e.g. fonts-KOI8-R-100dpi-1.0-10.fc8
