It seems we're running into problems with generated documentation... I can't
think of another reasoni right now why these files would conflict (as RPM allows
files with the same content belonging to different packages, at least it did the
last time I looked at it).

I don't think we can leave out docs in either the 32bit or 64bit version of the
package, putting them in $arch/ subdirectories is needless (they should contain
the same content at least as the reader is concerned) and a bit of overkill. The
only idea I have would be to split them out into a separate docs package but
that would be a gross workaround. Any other ideas? IMO in the long run, RPM
should not conflict on documentation and silently install the higher arch
version (x86_64) over the lower arch one.
Comment 2 Phil Knirsch 2006-09-15 06:20:14 EDT
Good point about conflicting documentation. And right of my head i don't have
any good idea either how to fix it now.

Read ya, Phil

FC5 Update has a docs package now, FC6 has a separate libs package which
includes these generated docs.
