Re: [opensuse-factory] RFC: Proposed relocation of /var/lib/rpm

It does work in the opposite direction, though: if the files are
architecture dependent, they do not belong under /usr/share

Depends on what you define as "architecture-(in)dependent".

We put .wav files into /usr/share and $game is - save for bugs -
able to read these Little Endian-specific files all the time.
rpm surely behaves similar. By that measure alone, the rpmdb would be
arch-indep.

The other measure is "paths listed in any such data file".
If something contains /usr/lib64 in it (or more visibly,
/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu on Debian), then that cannot be arch-independent. Or
is it - because every program is able to read the file?
