Bug#187019: More information on rpm --verify



Besides the rpm manpage (which is very thorough, however) I would also like 
to point out the following resources explaining more how RPM handles this 
(including sample output)

http://www.rpm.org/max-rpm/ch-rpm-verify.html "Using RPM to Verify 
Installed Packages"

http://www.rpm.org/max-rpm/s1-rpm-verify-what-to-verify.html "Selecting 
What to Verify, and How"

It would be nice if dpkg maintained similar semantics so that scripts or 
programs depending on that behavior could be ported from rpm to dpkg (and 
back) with ease.

In any case, there are a number of md5-related bugs that should probably be 
closed before trying to implement this, including 162691, 168443, 161097 
and  155799 (probably 155676 too).

Regards

Javi
