Description Eric Smith 2012-07-14 03:40:14 EDT
Description of problem:

This package installs a configuration file in /etc/tmpfiles.d which actually belongs in the %{_prefix}/lib/tmpfiles.d directory.  Putting a configuration file in /etc/tmpfiles.d is a violation of the Fedora tmpfiles packaging guidelines and contrary to the intent of /etc/tmpfiles.d to be used by local administrators to override default policy in /usr/lib/tmpfiles.d as documented in the tmpfiles.d(5) man page.

The Fedora Tmpfiles.d packaging guidelines may be found at:

Yes, this should be fixed, thanks for the report.
Comment 3 Peter Rajnoha 2012-12-06 06:03:40 EST
Fixed in F18+ (lvm2-2.02.97-1.fc18 and higher).
