Nick (CC'ed) is maintaining the SPECS for the CentOS RPMs, but I am not 
sure all changes are integrated in the RPM files. But AFAIK, they are 
based on the public specs here:
> I am hoping to submit a PR to move the ‘opensips’ binary to /usr/libexec, rather than a common $PATH location. We have had a problem where this binary was mistakenly run, rather than opensipsctl. Typically, daemon binaries that do not generally get run by users should be in /usr/libexec so that they are only very intentionally executed. This should probably go in to at the very least a minor version change as it may break some people’s custom init scripts etc.
I am not sure I fully agree with this. /usr/libexec contain binaries 
that should never be run as stand-alone. But that is not OpenSIPS' case, 
where you can easily start it in debug mode or smth like that. For 
example, a similar daemon is sshd, which is located in /usr/sbin/sshd. 
However, internally triggered binaries, such as sftp-server are located 
in /usr/libexec/openssh/sftp-server. This exec should never be executed 
outside sshd.

You are right, this is a bug in my changelog update script. I will 
update it now.
