I was performing a package review for RPM Fusion:
RPM Fusion follows the Fedora Packaging Guidelines so I think I can
ask here a question it came to me during the review.
This package has some exec files correctly installed by the packager
in %libexecdir/packagename/bin instead of %libdir/packagename/bin
because they are called by the main program who sits in %bindir.
The files in %libexecdir use some files in
%libexecdir/packagename/doc to show help, options, examples, etc when
called with some parameters.
Is it acceptable to leave these files here? Or they should be moved
They cannot be installed in %docdir because they affect the runtime of
Thanks in advance for you help.
