Of course they should (IMO), the subject is just for catching your

But prominent rpm persona think otherwise - Jeff Johnson considers rpm
owning its own /etc/rpm/config file wrong and even questions that
there exists a convention of packages owning their config files.


Isn't this handled in some guidelines? If not shouldn't it?
