The following metadata was found in MoinMoin that could not be converted to a useful value in MediaWiki:

  •  : This is for /sbin/install-info
  • gconftool-2: --makefile-uninstall-rule \

GConf part looks obsolete

A lot of packages (e. g. gnome-terminal, totem, gucharmap to name a few) simply install *.gschema.xml files into %{_datadir}/glib-2.0/schemas/ directory, not using any pre- or post-install scriplets.

The gconf part has some mistakes.

tag shoud be "`"

the --disable-schemas flag should be --disable-schemas-install.

Need BuildRequires systemd-units

systemd-units defines the _unitdir macro which is essential for building this package (esp in Mock!) Please add to the sample code.

%{_localstatedir}/lib/rpm-state/ directory

Regarding the following quote from the page:

We're asking that the %{_localstatedir}/lib/rpm-state/ directory be owned by either the rpm or filesystem packages in Fedora. Until that happens, a package that is providing this functionality needs to own %{_localstatedir}/lib/rpm-state/ as well as their subdirectory of it.

Is there some outstanding ticket or mailing list conversation tracking this effort, which could be referenced here?

Maybe file a ticket somewhere the FPC will notice? https://fedorahosted.org/fpc/ Tibbs (talk) 22:40, 28 January 2015 (UTC)

As of F24 this file is owned by filesystem package. So the note can be safely removed. --Msuchy (talk) 14:32, 3 August 2016 (UTC)

Scriptlet Ordering

Scriptlet ordering doesn't contain %triggerprein scriptlet add in rpm-4.6.0. Have a look at /usr/share/doc/rpm/triggers.

FileTriggers docs link is broken

The offsite link after "The version of RPM in Fedora also has functionality to automatically run scripts when files are placed in certain locations." points to http://www.rpm.org/wiki/FileTriggers, which leads to a 404 page. It looks like the correct link would be http://rpm.org/user_doc/file_triggers.html. -- Ferdnyc (talk) 09:46, 26 June 2017 (UTC)
