Someone was complaining that task-gnome was pulling in 32bit packages
on 64bit Mageia.
See bug #5188 (https://bugs.mageia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=5188).

It turns out that a package (swell-foop) was noarch whereas it
shouldn't be since
it contains binaries.

Please make arch-independent-package-contains-binary-or-object a
reason to reject
packages at upload time:

swell-foop.noarch: W:
arch-independent-package-contains-binary-or-object /usr/bin/swell-foop
