Description Pavel Alexeev 2016-01-08 09:27:27 EST
Description of problem:

It called /usr/share/autodl/AutoDL.py and intended to be used for run such by documentation.

According to FHS [1] common binaries must be placed under /usr/bin

I also suggest place under /usr/bin without .py suffix. May be symlink or wrapper.

[1] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Filesystem_Hierarchy_Standard

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
$ rpm -q autodownloader 

How reproducible:
Comment 1 Hans de Goede 2016-01-08 14:36:00 EST
autodownloader is only intended to be called from (shell) scripts, not by users directly (it will not work without a .autodl config file, so it really does not belong in $PATH.
Comment 2 Pavel Alexeev 2016-01-08 17:22:14 EST
Many binaries can't be used correctly without proper arguments (rm f.e.). What it changes?

Why you do not want place it under traditional binary place?
