Re: Cannot rely on /dev being present in %post scripts?

According to bug #517013, %post scripts should not assume that /dev is
available -- so we can't do anything that requires the existence of
/dev/null, /dev/urandom, etc.

Is this a known and expected packaging rule, or is it a bug in the way
that the user is attempting to install the packages?
IMHO, if i want to install something in a chroot i have to create /dev, and /proc entry at least or put a bind mount to these. So, i think that it is the user have do some error in installaling the package.
