Description Christopher Yeleighton 2013-06-07 12:30:55 UTC
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:21.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/21.0

GNU time is a different project from a different upstream than util-linux; the package should be split.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
  1. { rpm -qd util-linux; }

Actual Results:  
  1, /usr/share/doc/packages/time/COPYING

Expected Results:  
  1. /usr/share/doc/packages/util-linux/COPYING

Fixed in Factory.
Comment 1 Stanislav Brabec 2013-06-10 11:59:22 UTC
It is fixed in the Factory. Is there anything else what should be done?
Comment 2 Christopher Yeleighton 2013-06-10 12:07:53 UTC
Update supported editions.  Mis-attribution is not technically harmful but it is socially harmful.
Comment 3 Christopher Yeleighton 2013-06-10 12:10:36 UTC
BTW, I am afraid util-linux from Factory does not have COPYING at all.
Comment 4 Christopher Yeleighton 2013-06-10 12:14:34 UTC
And the customer deserves to have the README file in %doc.
