Description Bryn M. Reeves 2005-05-04 06:29:42 EDT
Description of problem:

The README file for sendmail-cf is installed as /usr/share/sendmail-cf/README -
the file contains useful documentation for the sendmail-cf M4 macros. The file
is also not marked as doc and hence not listed in the output of rpm -qd sendmail-cf.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.rpm -Uvh sendmail-cf-8.13.1-2.i386.rpm
2.rpm -qd sendmail-cf
3.ls /usr/share/sendmail-cf/README
4.ls /usr/share/doc/sendmail-cf/
Actual results:
1. install completes
2. returns no output
3. shows the README under /usr/share/sendmail-cf
4. No such file or directory

Expected results:
1. install completes
2. outputs:
3. No such file or directory
4. shows the README under /usr/share/doc/sendmail-cf-8.13.1-2

Additional info:

There is a second README under /usr/share/sendmail-cf/cf/README. This contains
the installation instructions. This is kind of redundant information, perhaps it
should either not be packaged, or moved to
Comment 1 Thomas Woerner 2005-05-11 11:13:37 EDT
These are cf and m4 files, which are no documentation.
Closing as "NOT A BUG".
