Description Eric Smith 2012-07-14 03:44:42 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 Paul Howarth 2012-07-14 08:33:30 EDT
This was fixed in Rawhide 10 days ago.

Given the trivial nature of this issue and that this change to the guidelines was announced a week after the general release of Fedora 17, I don't think it warrants an update being done for F-17.
