I'd like some advice about how to set up this package. Please see
a_jaeger's review in

I can fix the sshd_config stuff but what to do about the home
directory location?

A little background: this package installs a 'fonehome' user who's
sole purpose is to allow incoming SSH connections under that username.
These connections do not have pty's or sessions, rather they exist
only for port forwarding. Pubkey authentication is required.

This means that a 'fonehome' user must exist and must have a
${HOME}/.ssh/authorized_keys file.

I originally put the home directory under /usr/share but perhaps there
is a better location.

I'd say the best one is /var/lib/fonehome/ - so just call

useradd ... -d /var/lib/fonehome fonehome in your %post.

See osc less openSUSE:Factory ntp ntp.spec as an example.
