Description Michael Schwendt 2013-08-17 18:24:45 UTC
For the Fedora 20 unversioned docdirs change,


the jsoncpp package will need a fix, as currently it duplicates the documentation from the -doc subpackage in the base package. This is because %doc now picks up files stored in %{_docdir}/%{name}.

> %files doc
> %{_docdir}/%{name}

Comment 1 Michael Schwendt 2013-08-17 21:43:22 UTC
The duplicated doc files currently also cause a conflict on e.g. i686, because the noarch -doc package may have been built on a different arch.

Comment 2 Sébastien Willmann 2013-09-08 17:14:26 UTC
How should I fix this? Exclude the directory from the main package? Install doc in another directory?

one way to fix it

There are multiple solutions. Attached is one that also removes the extra /usr/share/doc/jsoncpp-doc directory in the -doc package. And it puts the many files from the doxygen docs into a html folder. Else it gets very crowded in the top docdir.
