Hi,


according to my build logs, installing something into /opt/packagename is
forbidden in FHS 2.2??
What's with that now?


...especially when I read up about FHS 2.2 and its explicitly allowed to
install into /opt/packagename...

It's forbidden for a distribution to install there. So, if you want to
deliver your package as part of openSUSE, /opt is wrong.

If you distribute it separately, it's ok to use.

Note that LSB has additional requirements here, I think instead of
packagename, it's companyname...
