Default Inclusion/Exclusion of BuildRoot tag and %defattr

Hi List

Referring to sections of Packaging Guidelines:

No longer necessary to explicitly include %defattr at the beginning of %
files.

and the fact that the BuildRoot tag, eve if defined, is ignored.

After reviewing packages I have suggested %defattr is not strictly
necessary. I have also removed %defattr(-,root,root,-) from my
contributed spec file https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=644711

Is this correct, i.e. do the package review request authors need to be
notified?

i.e. https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=720085

(My current reviews state I am new to FP maintainers)

They are now optional but there's no need to force people to be rid of them.
In particular, some people like to build a package for both Fedora and
EPEL-5. In this case, a lot of the things that are optional in Fedora have
to remain for the EPEL package.

Note that according to our guideline page only RPM releases older than
4.4 require %defattr, which would limit the requirement for it to specs
which need to build unmodified on EL4.

Ah... I always forget that -- %defattr is optional in EL-5 but not EL-4
; buildroot is needed even in EL-5.
