%files removes DOCDIR

Reported by: hicham Assigned to: RpmTickets Priority: trivial Milestone:
Component: rpm Version: RPM Development Keywords: Cc:


If a package install docs to DOCDIR, they get removed in %files section by the %doc macro as you can see in https://rpm.org/gitweb?p=rpm.git;a=blob;f=build/files.c;h=8d7fb2ed02459681386396a64bcb716e8bfe223e;hb=HEAD#l944

So in this case we have two solutions : - Don't use %doc to install COPYING ChangeLog? ... - Force the buildsystem to install docs somewhere else

First option means nullifying the use of %doc, second would mean installing docs in a non-standard location.
