Best convention for FILES variable


Rusty Howell
 

Hello,
I am relatively new to yocto, and I am working on several recipes at the moment and I'm wondering about using wildcards in my FILES_{PN} list. None of the packages have more than 5 or 6 files to package. They could easily be covered with two wildcard entries, but I wonder if there is benefit to listing each file explicitly. Thanks for the help.  Example below:
FILES_fooz = "\
*/fooz* \
*/*/fooz* \
"
vs
FILES_fooz = "\
   /lib/foozlib.so \
   /usr/lib/foozlib-2.so \
/usr/bin/fooz \
/bin/fooz \
/usr/share/fooz \
"
Thanks
