I plan to file tickets(bugs) to notify packagers of including INSTALL
files in RPMs. I think we don't have the needs to ship these files for
If the INSTALL file provides "only" the "build" commands, yes, we
have to ship it.
In some case this command is merged in some other file (README...)
Sometime, the INSTALL file provides more explanation (configuration,
environment, test..) and it could make sense to provide it. Of course it
will be better to ask upstream to split it (INSTALL / POST-INSTALL),
Sometime, this is part of larger documentation (ex, in
php-bartlett-PHP-CompatInfo, INSTALL.html is part of the upstream doc,
linked from index page, so it doesn't make sense to remove it).
I think, there is so much cases... we don't need to bother packager with
such a minor issue.
Any ideas? If all you agree I will start doing it now.
