I haven't referred to Perl packaging, but the general Packaging and Review
Guidelines. Unfortunately, you decided to cut off what I've quoted from
them. The part I find ambiguous.


The Perl packaging guidelines have their own section on directory
ownership:

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:Guidelines#Application_Specific_Guidelines
 -> https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:Perl#Directory_Ownership

It's only a little bit ambiguous as it doesn't cover a "MUST" but
just a "MAY" (quote: "are permitted to").
