Description Ricky Zhou 2008-07-23 03:40:15 UTC
Description of problem:

The /etc/bash_completion.d directory is owned by several packages.

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


How reproducible:

Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Make sure that bash-completion, monotone, git, bzr, and rpmlint are installed.
2. rpm -qf /etc/bash_completion.d
Actual results:

$ rpm -qf /etc/bash_completion.d

Expected results:

$ rpm -qf /etc/bash_completion.d

Additional info:

Side note: I think there's a typo in the spec.

install -pm 644 %{SOURCE2} contrib/mock
install -pm 644 %{SOURCE3} contrib/plague-client
install -pm 644 %{SOURCE3} contrib/repomanage

should probably be:

install -pm 644 %{SOURCE2} contrib/mock
install -pm 644 %{SOURCE4} contrib/plague-client
install -pm 644 %{SOURCE3} contrib/repomanage

Comment 1 Ville Skyttä 2008-07-23 17:25:24 UTC
I don't think this is a bug, and even if it is, there's nothing that can be done
in the bash-completion package to it.

The packages that install bash completion snippets to /etc/bash_completion.d do
not appear in any way *really* dependent on bash-completion.  It's just that if
bash-completion is installed, their completions will be auto enabled by it.  If
this is the case, the dupe dir ownership is correct.  But on the other hand if
they really require bash-completion (ie. do not function without it), they
should have a dependency in place and then the duplicate dir ownership should be

The "side note" issue is fixed in 20060301-12, thanks.  However, reporting
separate issues in separate bugs would be better from status tracking point of
view.  (Closing this one as NOTABUG because the "main" bug is not one.)
