The term "unowned directory" (or less commonly "orphaned
directory") is used in conjunction with packages that store
files in a directory, but don't include the directory itself.
When listing the list of files in the packages (e.g. with
"rpm -qlv ..." or rpmls from the UsefulScripts Wiki page),
you can see whether your package includes the "drwxr-xr-x"
entry for a directory and not just files within it.

file access permissions depending on root's umask. As another

Finally, there are multiple ways to fix it. One is to use %dir
