Are you confused? My Denyhosts installation falls under
/usr/share/denyhosts, not /usr/share/docs. The docs are installed to
there, which they should be. The executable is then under
/usr/bin/denyhosts.py, which seems fine to me too.

My RPM is from RPMforge (Dag).

I've been running it just fine for a long time.

Version: GnuPG v1.2.6 (GNU/Linux)
