+# Consider a program which is packaged into a package, and which gets
+# called in %post or %preun scriptlet of the package (e.g. in libgtk+2,
+# gtk-update-icon-cache might be called in %post-script).  Packaged
+# programs have "Requires" dependencies, and, for %post and %preun scripts,
+# the dependencies on packaged programs are optimized out (as well as other
+# dependencies provided by the package).  This is a problem: when executing
+# %post-script, its prerequisites might not be installed yet (e.g.
+# gtk-update-icon-cache requires recent glib2 version installed/upgraded
+# before libgtk+2).
+
+# The solution is: 1) to detect all packaged programs (and files), recursively,
+# which are used in %post-script; and 2) to find prerequisites for such files
+# and programs (which are not provided by the package itself), and add them to
+# Requires(post) dependencies.  Also, we want to ensure that 3) the list of
+# Requires(post) additional dependencies is only a subset of original Requires.
+
+# The above applies only to %post and %preun scriptlets.
