I don't understand the problem with yadex:

/etc/yadex/1.7.0 is unowned, occupied by:
	/etc/yadex/1.7.0/yadex.cfg, in package yadex (extras)

In the %files section of yadex.spec I have:

%dir %{_sysconfdir}/%{name}
%config(noreplace) %{_sysconfdir}/%{name}/%{version}/%{name}.cfg

I thought this would cause all subdirs of /etc/yadex to also be owned by 
the yadex package, but alas, that does not seem to be the case.  Does 
every recursive subdirectory of /etc/yadex need a %dir entry in this case?
