My opinion is that executable example scripts are fine and that
rpmlint is wrong to warn about them.  Probably we should have some
guidelines in this area because currently the situation is a bit
confused.

What do Fedora packager folk think?

IMO, such files are useful, helpful and should be allowed.

rpmlint is overzealous in warning about them.


Warnings are no review blockers.

Unfortunately, these warnings are justified, because rpm mis-treats such files.
