If anyone has any questions about this, don't hesitate to contact me.

I see that this is fixed in cvs but hasn't hit the mirrors for rawhide
at the time of posting.

Is this fixed scrollkeeper going to be issued as an update for FC-5 or
am I going to have to retain ownership of /usr/share/omf in the FC-5
branches of my affected package(s)?

I also note that packages un-owning /usr/share/omf will need to add a
dependency on scrollkeeper for the directory ownership; many of the
affected packages will currently only have scriptlet dependencies on

Indeed, and I wonder of we really want a dependency on scrollkeeper in this packages, then we could argue that all packages containing html docs should have a dependency on htmlview, etc.

Wouldn't it be better to but shared dirs like this into the filesystem package? The same goes for /usr/share/applications and /usr/share/icons/hicolor/XxX/apps
