I am working on a review
(, and I found the
use some unowned dirs. This would be OK, but it's not an isolated
problem. It turns out a few packages already in Fedora use unowned dirs.

$ yum provides /usr/share/mate/*
mate-menus-1.5.0-1.fc18.i686 : Displays menus for MATE Desktop

mate-window-manager-1.5.2-7.fc18.i686 : MATE Desktop window manager

(Duplicates removed from output)

But when we check who owns that dir, we get zip:
$ yum provides /usr/share/mate/
No Matches found

Another one:

$ yum provides /usr/lib/caja/*
mate-file-manager-1.5.1-1.fc18.i686 : File manager for MATE

But no one to own that dir:

$ yum provides /usr/lib/caja/
No Matches found

Either I am very brainfarted, or we really do have unowned dirs.
Packagers, any take?
