As found during review request bug https://bugzilla.redhat.com/891282 , fedora-review runs rpmlint on past builds of a package installed in the Mock chroot instead of updating them with the latest builds. The review.txt report then contains rpmlint results for the old builds in the "Rpmlint (installed packages)" section.
Steps to reproduce:
1) Run mock --init
2) Run fedora-review for the older src.rpm:
INFO: installing package(s): /home/personal_tmp/reviews/elementary/elementary/results/elementary-1.7.8-3.fc21.x86_64.rpm /home/personal_tmp/reviews/elementary/elementary/results/elementary-devel-1.7.8-3.fc21.x86_64.rpm
3) Run fedora-review for the newer src.rpm:
DEBUG: Running check: CheckPackageInstalls
DEBUG: Avoiding init of working mock root
INFO: Installing built package(s)
DEBUG: is_installed: Tested elementary, result: 0
DEBUG: Skipping already installed: elementary
DEBUG: is_installed: Tested elementary-devel, result: 0
DEBUG: Skipping already installed: elementary-devel
DEBUG: CheckPackageInstalls completed: 1.142 seconds
DEBUG: Running check: CheckRpmlintInstalled
DEBUG: is_installed: Tested rpmlint, result: 0
DEBUG: Skipping already installed: rpmlint
So, it testeds the old builds.
