[opensuse-buildservice] Re: /usr/lib -> /usr/share in build package
Miroslav Suchý <msuchy@xxxxxxxxxx> writes:

FHS is saying: if it is binary (or library), which should not be executed
directly by user, it should got into /usr/lib.
But if it is architecture independent (eg. perl/python script) it should
go to /usr/share.

That doesn't make sense. Whether an executable is implemented with a
scripting language or a compiled language should be transparent to the
caller. There should not be a requirement to move an executable between
libexecdir and datadir just because the implementation language changes.
All user-callable scripts are also located in bindir, not datadir.
