ecryptfs-utils : Unowned directories
Last modified: 2009-04-01 06:00:37 EDT
One or more directories are not included within this
package and/or its sub-packages:
=> ecryptfs-utils-python-69-3.fc11.i386 (rawhide-development-i386)
MUST: A package must own all directories that it creates. If it does not
create a directory that it uses, then it should require a package which
does create that directory.
The script to find unowned directories is not complete yet, but
still quite usable: http://mschwendt.fedorapeople.org/dircheck-remote.py
$ ./dircheck-remote.py -r rawhide -n ^ecryptfs-utils
Thanks for pointing that out. Fixed.
Btw, it'd be good if you make your script working without repository - just with rpm file.
The repository metadata are needed to resolve the package's dependencies and check whether directories are provided in any packages in the dependency-chain.
Noticing unowned directories in a .spec file is trivial (often), but without examining dependencies there would be false positives.
