Re: Packaging Webmin for Fedora 11+



Already made the decision to remove the file when building and have
spoken to Jamie Cameron, he will stop distributing these in his
packages.

But that was not really what I was after. This feature of detecting
binary files in noarch packages seems to be fairly new. I was wondering
how I can tell rpmbuild to include such files in an rpm package
explicitly?
