See https://fedorahosted.org/fpc/ticket/411 (the first part of which I am repeating here):
This interaction hasn't been problematic before, because generally using nodocs is an endpoint choice with no distribution after that. But now, we are looking at building some official cloud and container images with nodocs, so it suddenly becomes important.
As a bonus, it's my understanding that this tag can automatically handle hardlinking identical license files.
Specifically, I propose:
IMHO it makes sense to have this distribution wide; it's not specific to cloud at all.
Nevertheless, I really like the idea. This is a process, not necessarily required to be completed at a specific point of time.
Why don't we propose a badge for this and let users submit patches to specs?
I agree -- distro wide is the goal. Cloud is just the first pass because I think we're the first case where we as a project want to distribute stuff with nodocs. (At least the docker images.)
spot has volunteered to do the updates to at least some of the packages using provenpackager privs, which makes sense for a basic bulk change like this, I think. But if we can get other people doing it on their own packages, even better.
