Description lvv 2000-10-22 12:48:44 EDT
Default tmpwatch run from cron configured as tmpwatch 240 /tmp /var/tmp 
in RH7.0.  This is not compliant with FHS v2.1 (pp 3.11 and 5.12).   
Directories /tmp and /var/tmp should have very different cleaning 
policies.  It probably should look something like:

"tmpwatch 240 /tmp", 
"tmpwatch 2400 /var/tmp"
Comment 1 Preston Brown 2001-01-05 15:26:27 EST
agreed, changed /var/tmp to a 30 day interval for next release.
