Thanks Panu!

Some things I noticed:

commit c07efb9f changed:
-    if (hash && memcmp(hash, sigp->signhash16, 2) == 0) {
+    if (hash && memcmp(hash, sigp->signhash16, 2) != 0)
+       goto exit;

I guess that should be "!hash ||" instead.

Sine commit 23167c3e, everything tagged %dir will get a trailing
slash in the file list, breaking lots of things. I've worked around
this in the suse package, but a clean fix is probably to pass
a "RPMGLOB_ONLYDIR" flag to rpmGlob() instead of adding a trailing
slash. (Or change addFile() to strip trailing slashes.)
