NetworkManager upstream moved many stuff from /etc/NetworkManager
to /usr/lib/NetworkManager, like the dispatcher.d and VPN directories.
We have many packages which still install their stuff into e.g.
This is a specific example, but many other packages suffer from the same
problem. So dbus upstream moved also many files from
/etc/dbus-1 to /usr/share/dbus-1, and you can continue this list with
other "infrastructure" packages.
What would be a good way to:
- inform all package maintainers that they have to move their files?
- make sure new packages make it right from the beginning?
I think one option would be to add new rules to rpmlint to forbid files
in /etc/NetworkManager or /etc/dbus-1?
