- MUST: If a package includes something as %doc, it must not affect the
runtime of the application. To summarize: If it is in %doc, the program must
run properly if it is not present.
Even though this talks about runtime only, in my opinion it covers also taking
it into account in scriptlets (but it wouldn't hurt to mention that
explicitly). See also
