Hi, I've found a few more strange factory rpmlint warnings :-
rosegarden4.src: W: source-or-patch-not-compressed bz2
rosegarden4.src: W: source-or-patch-not-compressed bz2
rosegarden4.src: W: source-or-patch-not-compressed bz2
rosegarden4.src: W: source-or-patch-not-compressed bz2
A source archive or file in your package is not compressed using the bz2
compression method (doesn't have the bz2 extension).

rosegarden4.x86_64: W: invalid-url DistURL
rosegarden4.src: W: invalid-url DistURL
The value should be a valid, public HTTP, HTTPS, or FTP URL.

snd.x86_64: W: manpage-not-compressed bz2 /usr/share/man/man1/snd.1.gz
This manual page is not compressed with the bz2 compression method (does not
have the bz2 extension). If the compression does not happen
automatically when
the package is rebuilt, make sure that you have the appropriate rpm helper
and/or config packages for your target distribution installed and try
rebuilding again; if it still does not happen automatically, you can
this file in the %install section of the spec file.

I get these warnings in multimedia:apps rosegarden4 and snd (snd doesn't
have patches), the biggest rosegarden4 patch is a massive 1114 bytes
large and the smallest is 716 bytes large. I haven't tried it but 716
bytes might even be larger if compressed. The man page for snd is
compressed by rpm and I wasn't aware that bz2 compression was available
for man pages.
