Description Raffael Luthiger 2006-11-30 12:35:22 EST
Description of Feature:
The Filesystem Hierarchy Standard (FHS) states that there should be a
/srv-directory. (See URL) In my opinion it would be really good if Fedora (and
probably with it RedHat) would follow this recommendations for the following

A machine is always either a server or a client. If the machine is a client all
user specific files can be kept in /home. This makes it easier to a) backup all
data at once and b) have all data on one partition. Which makes it easier to
upgrade a machine (See Bug 150670 for more information about this). The same
ideas should be applied to servers as well.

My proposal is to go with something like this:
/srv/<service>/<service specific sub-element(s)>


Those are just an idea. Maybe /srv/http/domain.com/www would be better in order
to preserve the tree structure of the DNS.

The current filesystem rpm package does contain /srv, so I am closing this
