ok, I wrote an 'rpmlint' check for this rule:


(it is '*.txt' because the provider does not seem to like '*.py')

Example output:

| $ rpmlint openvpn-2.0.5-1.fc4.i386.rpm 
| E: openvpn %doc file '/usr/share/doc/openvpn-2.0.5/sample-scripts/auth-pam.pl' creates additional dependency '/usr/bin/perl'
| E: openvpn %doc file '/usr/share/doc/openvpn-2.0.5/sample-scripts/verify-cn' creates additional dependency '/usr/bin/perl'
