Correction: GROUP -- not CHANGELOG* - is the third I18N tag. My only excuse is that I haven't thought seriously about GROUP tag values this century. That hasn't stopped endless discussions however, sigh. -- You are receiving this because you are subscribed to this thread. Reply to this email

All of the I18N string tags (SUMMARY/DESCRIPTION/CHANGELOG*) should not be included in IDENTITY because the value returned can depend on an envvar, and/or external files, and/or macros embedded in text. Then there are issues with the stat(2) links, where st_mtime/st_rdev/st_inode tags should

There are two meanings for "used": instantiated in the header and summed within IDENTITY. Newly defined/added tags will not be part of IDENTITY if positive/inclusive logic is used (as said repeatedly). Tags that were previously present in header/IDENTITY and were dropped will be a change of

Panu pointed out that using the immutable region header instead of the rpmdb header gets rid of all the remapped signature tags and appended tags, thereby shortening the list above considerably. The logic still needs to become positive/inclusive to ensure the IDENTITY tag set is both well

The previous discussion was [here](http://lists.rpm.org/pipermail/rpm-maint/2018-April/007718.html). Main thought: - compute identity as a digest of filtered iterated pair of tags and its values of immutable header region; - change the awk script that generates the tag table to add a marker
