Not sure i am doing it correctly but .. ( or not sure it's intentionally made that FPM will not remove trailing slash )

fpm -s dir -t rpm --debug --verbose --force --rpm-attr '0555,dhajoshi,other:/tmp/testpacking/./parent' --name testfpm --repo-id osbuild --version 1.0 --workdir /var/tmp/ --prefix /tmp/testpacking/ --directories . -C /tmp/testpacking/ .

error: line 43: Prefixes must not end with "/": Prefix: /tmp/ {:level=>:info, :file=>"cabin/mixins/pipe.rb", :line=>"46"}
