Re: [Fedora-packaging] Single package directory ownership

Common sense trumps that rule rather often; basically you should never
own something that deep core packages like filesystem own and you
really shouldn't own something that is owned by packages you depend
on.  But Perl packages often end up owning the same directories when
they're at the same place in the hierarchy but don't depend on each
other.

For X, though, we do have the xorg-x11-filesystem package.  I'm
wondering if we shouldn't treat it like the filesystem package, and
have it own /usr/lib/xorg/modules and stuff under it.  (Because of a
package I'm reviewing,
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=174021, I wonder
if /usr/share/X11/app-defaults shouldn't also be owned by the
xorg-x11-filesystem package.)

Then again it's quite possible I'm misunderstanding the purpose of
that package.
