I've been meaning to ask, what are the consequences in terms of the
rpm format etc. for packages that didn't pass the mass rebuild (for
whatever reason, oftentimes GCC 4.4 problems)?

I thought one of the reasons for the mass rebuild was because of the
changes to rpm and the RPM format.  Will the older packages -fc10 (or
even -fc11 if built before the rpm change) built with the older rpm,
install properly for example?

Also are the mass-rebuild status pages still being updated?


and what is the difference between them?  It seems that the latter
list is longer (184 vs. 124) and I'm quite sure why.
