Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:

2. rpm -ql -p ./perl-App-Cmd-0.330-2.fc24.noarch.rpm | grep /t/

Additional info:

Many Perl distributions (they call it "distribution" because term "package" is
used for a Perl language construct) contain tests. Perl distribution installer
unpacks distribution, run tests, and installs Perl modules to the user system.
Tests are NOT installed.

perl-App-Cmd rpm package contains a lot of tests, which are installed to the
/usr/share/doc/perl-App-Cmd/ directory. This is a bug. Tests are NOT
documentation, and so, should NOT be installed into /usr/share/doc/. Moreover,
tests should NOT be included into rpm at all, since rpm does not run them
before installing the modules.
