= Proposed System Wide Change: Change Packaging Guidelines to discourage 
requires into /bin and /sbin =
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/NoBinDeps

Change owner(s): Ales Kozumplik <ales at redhat.com>

Disallow dependencies on files under /bin, /sbin, /lib and /lib64. 

== Detailed description ==
The current packaging guidelines read:

"Whenever possible you should avoid file dependencies outside of /etc, /bin, 
/sbin, /usr/bin, or /usr/sbin."

I propose changing this to:

"Whenever possible you should avoid file dependencies outside of /etc, 
/usr/bin, or /usr/sbin."

Related FPC ticket [1]: FPC wanted this change to be created. 

== Scope ==
Proposal owners: None 
Other developers: replace all explicit /bin/<foo> requires with 
/usr/bin/<foo>. 

Release engineering: N/A 
Policies and guidelines: update the packaging guidelines accordingly.
