I experimented with packaging Thonny, Python IDE for beginners

Here is my attempt:

It is based on Fedora package
but I changed some package names and included some other tweaks.

This SPEC builds nicely on my own computer (Tumbleweed) but the Open Build
Service complains about icon folders not owned by a package:

[ 44s] thonny-2.1.16-7.1.noarch.rpm: directories not owned by a package:
[ 44s] - /usr/share/icons/hicolor
[ 44s] - /usr/share/icons/hicolor/128x128
[ 44s] - /usr/share/icons/hicolor/128x128/apps

My SPEC does require hicolor-icon-theme, so I expected that these folder
are owned by that package.

Any ideas how to fix this?

Do I understand correctly that in order to get this Thonny into openSUSE
repos it needs to first build on Open Build Service?

you could just add

%dir /usr/share/icons/hicolor/128x128/apps
%dir /usr/share/icons/hicolor/128x128/
%dir /usr/share/icons/hicolor

to the filelist to fix the build. Directories can be owned by multiple

This sounds like a packaging bug in hicolor-icon-theme. It should
correctly own all of them.
