    Yesterday I had a mail exchange with scop, after looking at the 
version of rpmlint included in RHEL 6 beta One big question was raised 
by scop. Quoting from his email: " I'm
somewhat surprised that they've decided to go with a version that old 
for a  package being newly introduced and would be interested in hearing 
about the reasons.".
    Since the package does not list the maintainer's name ( last entry 
in the spec's changelog is scop's ), I thought about asking here... 
Anyone knows the reason for shipping rpmlint-0.91 when F-12 includes 0.95 ?
