Description of problem:


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

$rpm -qa | grep '^python'
python-devel-2.3.4-14.3
python-ldap-2.0.1-2
python-2.3.4-14.3

by any package
file /usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/japanese/__init__.pyo is not owned by any
package
file /usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/libxml2.pyc is not owned by any package
file /usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/rhpl/gzread.pyo is not owned by any package

Steps to Reproduce:

"rpm -qf" on any of the above files.
  
Actual results:

RPM reports the files aren't owned by any package

Expected results:

Since these files are in /usr/lib, they should be owned by a package.

Additional info:

Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2007-03-29 14:32:55 UTC
The files also aren't shipped by any package; they get created at runtime when
you run a python app with -O2.

With RHEL5, we've moved to always pre-generating all of the .pyc and .pyo files
which helps to avoid things like this.
