Re: Changing the rpm default queryformat to include arch

To put it shortly, I going to switch the default rpm queryformat to include package architecture (ie what you get now with
rpm -q --qf "%{name}-%{version}-%{release}.%{arch}\n") in a few days or so.

This is something that should've been done several releases ago really, but since it presumably breaks all sorts of scripts people have it's gotten delayed and delayed... The next major rpm.org release changes the default anyway, this is just an initial step to see what breaks.

If you know the change would break some of the buildsystem / other critical Fedora infrastructure, please holler NOW! I can delay the change a bit to allow critical pieces to be fixed first, but F9 *will* have the new queryformat so better prepare for it...

Fixing any scripts that absolutely rely on the old default is trivial: just them use explicit --qf "%{name}-%{version}-%{release}"

Excellent then I can finally remove my rpm alias adding that as query format from my .bashrc :)
