Hi all!

As I posted on the packaging ML[1] the new RPM 4.7.1 in Factory allows
us to create a noarch subpackages. We might save significant space on
BiArch DVDs and mirrors if we mark all the *-doc, *-devel-doc,
*-branding-* and similar subpackages that are arch because of the main
package. I don't have even a rough estimate, but I can hack a script
that will check the filelists of the subpackages if they could be marked
as noarch. What do you think?

I suggest an rpmlint check like we have already an rpmlint check that tells
us whether the whole package should be noarch.

rpmlint works on subpackages only anyway, but rpmlint bash-doc.rpm does not
talk about no-binary.

Greetings, Stephan
