Thanks for the advice.
I changed it and updated files are available in the same location as above.
I believe that the package should own the folders, and not the content:
I made the changes you requested and uploaded it again to the location above.
Have you looked into these errors reported by rpmlint:
[~/rpmbuild/RPMS/x86_64] rpmlint new-stuff-manager-*
E: new-stuff-manager no-binary
E: new-stuff-manager only-non-binary-in-usr-lib
E: new-stuff-manager-debuginfo empty-debuginfo-package
W: new-stuff-manager-devel no-documentation
I solved the empty-debuginfo-package problem but I don't know about the other

rpmlint doesn't like it, but it's okay.
Sebastian, were you going to supply an updated package? (You'll need to

just post a plain link, thanks.
Thanks. Unfortunately this fails to build for me (in mock, x86_64, rawhide);

I can verify that gnupg2 was installed in the buildroot.
Sebastian, the Fedora Account System does not know your e-mail address,
therefore I assume you are not already a package maintainer in Fedora and
therefore need to be sponsored. Please read:
Okay, I completed the steps in the "Get a Fedora Account" section.
Well, first fix the issue pointed out by Jason on comment 11.
Although, I was able to fix the issue Jason reported I came across some other
problems. I didn't have time to work on this project for quite some time. I
think best is to drop this request. I request inclusion again if I'm more
Well, then please feel free to request a new review request
when you have time, thank you!
