Description Eric Smith 2012-07-14 03:41:34 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:
Comment 1 Christoph Wickert 2012-07-14 05:50:24 EDT
Thanks for filing this bug. This is in fact not a violation but a change of the packaging guidelines and I don't recall this change eve being announced.
Comment 2 Eric Smith 2012-07-15 03:12:18 EDT
OK, I agree that "violates" was probably too strong a word, and I wasn't as familiar with the history as I should have been. Although FPC ticket 176 gives a proposed announcement text, perhaps the announcement wasn't sent.
Comment 3 Christoph Wickert 2013-02-17 18:21:27 EST
I fixed this already back in August 2012. Sorry for not closing the bug earlier.
