Description imz 2002-01-31 21:20:33 MSK
1. /etc/X11/xdm/chooser (and other xdm files: rpm -q XFree86 -l | fgrep xdm) -- is it fine to have some files for xdm, when xdm itself is in another package (XFree86-utils).
Since xdm is a special program (it may be needed when no other utils have to be installed, e.g. on X-terminals), I suggest to make a separate pkg with it.

2. App-defaults are read by programs from local filesystem, rather than provided by the X-server. A corresponding  app-defaults file should accompany the program binary.

Thus all /etc/X11/app-defaults/* should be moved from XFree86 to XFree86-utils pkg, where the binaries are. One exception is Chooser which is xdm related.

By what package should be owned the directory app-defaults then?

3. Icons should accompany the program binaries. All icons from XFree86 (rpm -q XFree86 -l | fgrep icons/) should be moved to XFree86-utils.

4. All twm related files (rpm -q XFree86 | fgrep twm) should  be moved to XFree86-utils pkg, where twm\'s binary is.

5. rstartd related files (rpm -q XFree86 -l | fgrep rstart) should be moved to XFree86-utils, since the binary of rstartd is there (and it is really a kind of X-client).
