[Rpm-maint] RPM 4.11.2 rc2 released

The original idea was to release 4.11.2 final with a couple of very 
minor tweaks on top of rc1 this Monday, but that obviously didn't 
happen... and yesterday I discovered a bug ugly enough that it deserves 
to be fixed *now* and not in some future maintenance update that gets 
released who knows when.

The bug has technically been present just about forever, but mostly 
dormant until in rpm >= 4.10 where it causes header sizes to nearly 
double on install, causing bogus install failures and rpmdb bloat at 
least. For the gory details, see

Because of that change we're going for another rc "just in case", but 
final is planned within a week or so, not another 2-3 weeks.

The other changes since rc1 are really minor tweaks, see
or the git changelog:

Oh and the actual download info is, as usual, at
