Currently there are several packages in Fedora that own

directory, we will be opening bugs on the other packages that should no
longer own it.

For more information about the rationale for directory ownership refer

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)?

Looking in cvs, I see that scrollkeeper only owns /usr/share/omf in the development "branch", and not the older (e.g. FC-5) branches. So I shall continue to have my packages own /usr/share/omf for the older releases when necessary.
