Description Jens Petersen 2007-09-24 00:11:46 EDT
Description of problem:
It would be nice if filesystem could own %{_datadir}/ghostscript/conf.d
since it is used by a number of fonts which should not have to require

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -qf /usr/share/ghostscript/conf.d
Actual results:
ghostscript and some fonts

Expected results:
filesystem, so that ghostscript does not have to be installed.
Comment 1 Mamoru TASAKA 2007-09-24 00:42:51 EDT
Also I think %_datadir/ghostscript/conf.d should be owned by

But in this case as %_datadir/ghostscript is the
parent directory, I think %_datadir/ghostscript should also be owned
by filesystem (to avoid ghostscript dependency).
Comment 2 Phil Knirsch 2008-03-27 11:37:04 EDT
filesystem doesn't so far contain any directly application related files, so i'm
not in favor of adding /usr/share/ghostscript/conf.d or even
/usr/share/ghostscript to it.

If the fonts would be moved to another location which ghostscript would also use
that would be something different though (e.g. /usr/share/fonts will be owned by
filesystem with the next build).

Read ya, Phil
Comment 3 Jens Petersen 2008-04-09 03:05:28 EDT
The files in /usr/share/ghostscript/conf.d are not fonts
but config files related ghostscript: mostly font aliases for CJK fonts

Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:

Comment 6 Phil Knirsch 2009-03-04 08:11:15 EST
Talked a long time with the ghostscript owner yesterday about it and we came to the same conclusion that unfortunately having those directories owned by filesystem would be the best (yet still ugly) solution.

Added it to the latest filesystem package for rawhide.

Thanks & regards, Phil
