Files listed twice question

Hi there,

I'm an absolute newbie trying to package an application with RPM for the first time and would like to mark some files as config files. The top directory of this aplication has several files and directories, only two of which hold config files. Thus, I'm doing something like this in my spec file:

%config /usr/local/myAppTopDir/configDir1/*
%config /usr/local/myAppTopDir/configDir2/*

Obviously, this generates several 'file listed twice' warnings. However, I queried the generated rpm and didn't find anything wrong with it. All config files where included and correctly marked as config files.

So my questions are: can I safely ignore these warnings or listing files twice like I have causes a problem I'm not seeing now? is there a better way to do what I want?

I have been looking through the list archives so I know many of you would advice me to explicitly list all files. I know this would take care of this particular problem, but I don't want to do that unless I really have to, since I find globbing significantly more practical in this case.

I thank you already for taking the time to read this.
