No, because we cannot even know the build revision when writing the changelog
(and it might be different for same source
built in different projects, and addititonally it will get the build counter
added by OBS).

The check is just wrong for openSUSE. It is a distribution specific check and
should never have gotten into upstream RPM
(IMVHO).

It's pretty much only an invalid check in openSUSE. Fedora, Mageia,
ALT, PLD, and every other distribution I know of that maintains RPM
changelogs does it the way Fedora does.

And rpmlint was created by Mandrake, so of course this check is in
there, since they're the one that created the practice. Since it's
trivial to disable, I'm not removing it from upstream.
