[Rpm-ecosystem] RFC #417 %optional file attribute

FYI: Using %config with %ghost is meaningless gibberish because there is no digest (or any content) associated with the path in the header metadata.

And %optional has nothing whatsoever to do with %optional because %optional is entirely a build time directive, not a file nor a verify flag, like %missingok is.

Comments about %optional with imaginary fantastic counter examples and allusions are mostly useless.
