like Lennart Poettering wants to do something similar with Fedora
for systemd.volatile, /etc should only contain the user modified
files, everything distribution provided should be located in /usr.
I only don't like to fill up /usr/lib with even more stuff people
will not find anymore afterwards.
The discussions on the FHS mailing list were mixed, but in the
end: FHS will not specify anything, we should just do it. The
most promising suggestions were:
Starting doing the changes and moving the stuff around is
simple, we only need to agree on a location.
What's the opinion here?
If we do want to follow Poettering and Fedora, then to me it would sound
logical to at least go the same direction (together with Fedora?).
No, we don't want to follow Poettering and Fedora, especially not, if
they move everything to /usr/lib. While we share the same idea, but to
solve complelty different problems, we hope we can convience them to
follow us and put the configuration files in an own directory.
/usr/lib is already overcrowded and you cannot really search/grep there
for something. The clear feedback I got until now, especially at the
openSUSE Conference, was, please make sure that the configuration files
are back in one, or at least two locations and not in several hundred
BTW: is there a list of affected packages available?
That can't be
too long, is it?
rpm -qf /etc/* /etc/*/* | sort -u
The list is long, some of them are low hanging fuits, others will be
next to impossible to solve. That's why I'm interested in what Lennart
is planing, it could save us quite some work.
