$ rpm -qf /etc/skel/

suggestion: move dir to filesystem package

rationale: packages providing $HOME skeletons shouldn't depend on 
useradd tools
in the future pwdutils could be replaced by shadow (again).

background: stupid reason (initation for the change): bash Requires 
pwdutils for /etc/skel, but pwdutils is pointless dep in chroot intended 
to build packages
