What Removed Added

Is it too late to object to this change, which is completely misguided?

Instead of breaking every single package by changing the meaning of
"excludedocs" to mean "let me strip these files from the package", how about
adding support for tagging files in an rpm as strippable or optional, so that
not only documentation can be dropped when space is at a premium, but any other
files that may not be essential for the functionality?

That way, every single package would still be OK even without any markup, and
packages can be updated to mark files as optional over time. Instead, this
%license macro now means that all packages that have used %doc to tag the
LICENSE file somehow violate the GPL.
