update-alternatives- RPM for aarch64

From OpenSuSE Ports Tumbleweed for aarch64

Name: update-alternatives Distribution: openSUSE Tumbleweed
Version: Vendor: openSUSE
Release: 5.3 Build date: Wed Nov 27 00:18:09 2019
Group: System/Management Build host: armbuild21
Size: 91767 Source RPM: update-alternatives-
Summary: Maintain symbolic links determining default commands
update-alternatives creates, removes, maintains and displays
information about the symbolic links comprising the alternatives
system. It is possible for several programs fulfilling the same or
similar functions to be installed on a single system at the same time.
For example, many systems have several text editors installed at once.
This gives choice to the users of a system, allowing each to use a
different editor, if desired, but makes it difficult for a program to
make a good choice of editor to invoke if the user has not specified a
particular preference.

* Wed Nov 22 2017
  - Migrate u-a data from /var/lib/rpm instead of relying on dbpath:
    no u-a version ever installed files explicitly into dbpath, but
    always hard specified /var/lib/rpm. The fact that RPM moved its
    database is irrelevant to update-alternatives. In case RPM moved
    it's database, our files are still accessible via the
    /var/lib/rpm symlink being put in place.
  - Drop the arbitrary depenency on a specific rpm version: the idea
    was to ensure to have an rpm with the new dbpath location in
    place. For one, the dependency does not work as intended, and
    2nd, as the migration now happens explicitly from the old u-a
    admindir without relying on dbpath, is no longer needed.
