This package contains files in /srv, which according to a recent packaging
guideline change is no longer allowed.


Please ensure that the files are placed elsewhere.

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

Not blocking F10 over this.  Moving to target.  Would like to see some input from the maintainer though, given that this was filed 5+ months ago.

Comment 3 seth vidal 2008-11-17 18:31:27 UTC
Looks like a minor patch to the xinetd config file and then to the spec file to mkdir -p another dir instead of /srv/git. I'm not the maintainer but I was just looking it over. easyfix.

Comment 4 Todd Zullinger 2008-12-24 01:48:11 UTC
Thanks for fixing this Seth.  Is it desirable to fix this in F-9 as well, or can we close this now that it is fixed in the F-10 and devel branches?

(This is pretty minor, but would renaming to /var/lib/git be acceptable when git-1.6.1 is released and built for devel?  I don't imagine anything in git other than git-daemon will use /var/lib, so just /var/lib/git should be reasonable.  If/when some other part of git needs a place in /var/lib, we could move the daemon stuff to /var/lib/git/daemon and avoid cluttering /var/lib.)
