We checked in rpm 4.7 last week to be compatible with Fedora again

Is this why my FACTORY update today is that large? It seems that
basically all packages get updated, even ones that have not seen a
change to their sources for a long time like the following (dates
in brackets are those of the last ChangeLog entry):

Installing: translation-update-11.1-1.5 [Mar 16 2009]
Installing: susehelp_en-2007.08.22-123.4 [May 30 2008]
Installing: susehelp_de-2007.08.22-123.4 [May 30 2008]

The package diff shows that the rpm gives different output for RPMVERSION and
we currently check for that:

compare /.build.oldpackages/susehelp-2007.08.22-123.3.src.rpm

Or would that be something different?

Assuming there are no material changes, would there have been some
way to avoid those updates?

The question is whether build-compare should look at the rpm version or not.
Coolo, what do you think?
