#426 Need policy and macros for binfmt.d file handling
Closed: Fixed None Opened 7 years ago by mooninite.

According to the binfmt.d manpage, packages should place their files in /lib/binfmt.d and users may override in /etc/binfmt.d. There are only 3 packages that I know of that create binfmt.d files: qemu, ksh, and wine. Qemu places them in /lib but the other two place their files in /etc. IMHO we need a policy that follows the manpage.

RPM macros should be created so that packages installing binfmt snippets can
actually register/unregister them on package installation/deinstallation

I think this is somewhat outdated now that we have %binfmt_apply. Going to have some fun with trac to bump this back for a meeting to make sure I don't write up things incorrectly.

We talked about this at today's meeting (http://meetbot.fedoraproject.org/fedora-meeting-2/2015-02-12/fpc.2015-02-12-17.05.txt):
