Description Richard W.M. Jones 2008-10-29 07:05:10 EDT
The MinGW packaging guidelines were approved recently.


/usr/i686-pc-mingw32 is an acceptable path for installing
MinGW packages in Fedora.  (Yes, it's horrible, non-FSB
compliant, and no one really likes it, but it's a hard
requirement for gcc cross-compilers that we aren't in a
position to change).

rpmlint gives this warning:

mingw32-filesystem.noarch: W: non-standard-dir-in-usr i686-pc-mingw32

If rpmlint is running in Fedora and the package name begins
with 'mingw32-', then this warning is now wrong.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.
