Executive summary: a bug in package generation of rpm 4.12, presumably
related to hardlinked files has been spotted. I've untagged 4.12 while
we're investigating, some packages might need a rebuild because of this.
If you haven't built packages for rawhide today, you can probably stop
e2fsprogs-1.42.10-4.fc21 (builder/owner cc'd) is known to be slightly
broken because of this and I've untagged that as well, a rebuild will be
needed. Other packages (less than two dozen or so) *might* be affected
if you've built something for rawhide in the last four hours or so, but
the exact issue is not known yet so dont know...
The bug was on handling of multiple interleaved hardlinked sets of files
within package. Not the most common situation but not impossibly rare
either. Packages which dont have hardlinked files do not need rebuilds
for this, otherwise it depends on the exact contents.
Fixed in rpm-4.11.90-0.git12844.2.fc20.
