I've posted a patch upstream[1] which reduces the number
of rpmlint problems.  Now we are left with:

> libvirt.x86_64: E: non-standard-dir-perm /var/lib/libvirt/images 0700
> (for various directories)

I think rpmlint is wrong about these errors.  The permissions
on these directories is intended to be 0700.

> libvirt.x86_64: E: incoherent-logrotate-file /etc/logrotate.d/libvirtd

Rpmlint's complaint is the logrotate file should have the same
name as the package.  In this case it has the same name as the
daemon, which seems acceptable to me.

> libvirt.x86_64: W: dangerous-command-in-%post ln

It's a fair warning, but in this case the use of 'ln' in %post
is justified.

> libvirt-devel.x86_64: W: spurious-executable-perm /usr/share/doc/libvirt-devel-0.6.0/examples/python/domstart.py
> (and various other *.py files)

For the examples, this seems OK, since people may wish to run
the examples directly.

For the python libraries, there is a mix of +x/-x permissions, and
I don't know what is correct.

> libvirt-devel.x86_64: W: doc-file-dependency /usr/share/doc/libvirt-devel-0.6.0/examples/index.py /usr/bin/python
> (etc)

This seems OK to me.
