PD> Are these files really fedora specific, or package specific?
In the case of my packages, or packages where I have recommended the
use of README.Fedora, they indicate specific information on how Fedora
has provided default configurations and any Fedora-specific setup
necessary (such as indicating that a web application has installed an
apache config file restricting access to localhost until default
passwords are changed).
PD> In most cases they are package specific, so I think the file name
PD> should reflect that, and also it helps others (or EPEL) reuse spec
EPEL is a Fedora product, is it not? If someone wants to lift a
Fedora package and has concerns about such files appearing in it, they
are welcome to rename them. That's not my business, though.
If someone wants to propose a standard macro which expands to
"Fedora", "EPEL" or whatever a hypothetical Fedora-consuming distro
might wish, then I would happily use it.
