Updated rpmlint packages that fix two bugs are now available.
Rpmlint is a tool for checking common errors in rpm packages. It can be used to test individual packages and specific files before uploading or to check an entire distribution. By default all applicable checks are processed but specific checks can be performed by using command line parameters.

Bug Fixes

Previously, an incorrect rule in rpmlint caused it to report a "missing-lsb-keyword Default-Stop" error message for services that did not start by default in any run level. This update corrects the rule in rpmlint, and error messages no longer occur in the described scenario.
When a package had a UTF-8 encoding error in the description, or the description was encoded in a different character set, then rpmlint terminated unexpectedly with a segmentation fault. With this update, rmplint returns an error message that the description has incorrectly encoded UTF-8 data (tag-not-utf8 error), and crashes no longer occur in the described scenario.
Users of rpmlint are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs.
