Hi guys,

anyone knows why the root account misses the usual skel items? I've also noticed the /root directory is a symlink into /var/roothome which I think might be related...

Thanks, milan

This was raised on the Fedora side. We've got a bug open - it probably won't be solved in F21 but will be addressed in Fedora 22, I believe. Bug raised here:
