Re: [opensuse-packaging] /var/adm/update-scripts mechanism changed?

And /usr/lib/steam is also marked %ghost, but it is created and owned
by steam package.

We write such things in %files section simply because we want the rpm
to own all the things, the directories created in %install section,
and the filled contents in %post section.

A maybe silly question - why don't you package those directories as
%dir /usr/lib/steam
if they are created in %post anyway (aka "always there")?
That avoids the black magic and also cleans up when removing the package
(only empty directories are removed AFAIK).

BTW: Directories can be owned by multiple packages without conflicts
(the permissions should of course match ;-)
