No, this whole thread suggests that massive
co-ownership like this is
a bad idea. It's too easy to trigger conflicts everywhere in ways that
are hard to diagnose. This is a major aspect of openSUSE packaging
that I *really* don't like compared to Fedora, Mageia/Mandriva, and
How do they handle the issue? Does their filesystem package contain more directories?
But then, /usr/share/metainfo (which was the directory in question here) does belong
to "filesystem" already, at least in 15.1... so I don't really understand
error is coming from at all...
Well, usually there's one "golden owner" until it makes it into
"filesystem", (for example, appstream had a -filesystem package).
Depending on the type of directory thing, the path may move to
filesystem or stay as a filesystem subpackage. The latter case is how
httpd and nginx filesystem paths are maintained today.
There's a fair number of <package>-filesystem packages in Fedora for
this purpose, and this strategy allows for loosely coupled paths to be
still owned by a single package, making it *much* easier to figure out
what directories actually belong to and are for.
If it is because of building for older distributions,
then probably the best solution
is to just remove the metainfo directory and content from the package... ;-)
Nah, it's just because the openSUSE policy is lazy in this regard and
doesn't mandate figuring out a "golden owner" for a path.
