Description Lennart Poettering 2010-11-23 23:39:49 UTC
Your package polipo appears to include a file in /var/run or /var/lock. With an upcoming change in Rawhide these directories will now be mounted as tmpfs. For details about this change please consult http://lists.fedoraproject.org/pipermail/devel-announce/2010-November/000726.html For your package this means that you need add %ghost to all files that are placed in either of these two directories. Please make sure to make this change in time for the F15 cycle. For details about %ghost see http://www.rpm.org/max-rpm-snapshot/s1-rpm-inside-files-list-directives.html#S3-RPM-INSIDE-FLIST-GHOST-DIRECTIVE , for more information on the F15 feature see the feature page https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/var-run-tmpfs . If your package already uses %ghost on these files, feel free to close this bug report right-away. Sorry for this mass bug filing, and if you have any further questions, don't hesitate to ask on fedora-devel or ask me personally. Thank you, Lennart

This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database.  Reassigning to the new owner of this component.

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Tmpfiles.d_packaging_draft

"Files that the program places directly into /var/run or /var/lock or into subdirectories of those may be listed in the %files section as %ghost but you may also omit them entirely as the files will be cleaned up on every reboot."

Believe this was probably written after your bug was filed.

The chosen fix will be to use tmpfiles.d and remove any other %files packaging of /var/run or /var/lock files/dir.
