Description Matthias Clasen 2007-05-06 17:31:34 EDT
There are a number of widely used directories with no clear natural owner,
that should probably go into filesystem (or in the future, in a
filesystem-desktop subpackage):

/usr/share/themes - natural companion to /usr/share/icons, which is already there
/usr/share/backgrounds - for this one, we could alternatively declare  
     desktop-backgrounds-basic to be the official owner...
/usr/share/gtk-doc/html - since /usr/share/gtk-doc is already there, and the
     html subdirectory is the actually problematic one.  Although I must admit
     that I'd be just as happy to have these be owned by gtk-doc
Comment 1 Nicolas Mailhot 2007-05-14 11:03:15 EDT
/etc/fonts/conf.d needs to join them.

Our font packaging guidelines ask for font packages not to depend on fontconfig.
However several packages drop fontconfig rules in /etc/fonts/conf.d (the rules
are interpreted if fontconfig is present. If not the main "feature" of font
packages, the font files themselves, is still available for use, and the rule
files harm no one)

Currently that means /etc/fonts/conf.d can be used without a package owning it.
To respect the "directory ownership" guideline this directory should be
transferred from fontconfig to a neutral filesystem package font packages can
depend on (without forcing install of fontconfig binaries)
Comment 2 Phil Knirsch 2007-05-24 10:37:08 EDT
I agree with /usr/share/themes and /etc/fonts/conf.d being part of filesystems,
changes have already been put it.

For /usr/share/backgrounds and /usr/share/gtk-doc/html i'd rather seem those
being owned by the packages you mentioned above.

Fixes will be in next filesystem build.


Read ya, Phil
