Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1310900
/usr/@DATADIRNAME@/ is an unusual place for a /locale/ directory.

Description of problem: I just noticed that the message files for libsoup had been installed in the above, fairly unusual, location on 17 Feb. (I assume that this was the result of an error in the .rpm file.)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 2.53.90-1
How reproducible: Didn't try
Steps to Reproduce: n/a
Actual results: See above
Expected results: Files installed in /usr/share/locale/../LC_MESSAGES/libsoup.mo, where /../ is the locale code.
Additional info I noticed this when I did a ls on /usr, and marked it "low" priority because - as far as I know - I don't often use libsoup, but if the library pops an error, and doesn't look for its messages the the "strange" location, will they see a error message that's hard to understand?
I did look in /usr/share/locale/, and no libsoup.mo files are there, so the cleanup after the rpm was installed probably removed them.
Yeah, this is caused by an old bug in intltool, which has always been fixed in f23, but for some reason I needed to do an "intltoolize --force" to overwrite the old buggy version of po/Makefile.in.in. Anyway, it will be fixed in the .91 tarball.
