Monotone-server installs DB in non standard location
Last modified: 2007-12-26 18:51:22 EST
Description of problem:
The default configuration for monotone-server installs the monotone database in
/var/db/monotone. This is a non-standard location. According to the FHS
[http://www.pathname.com/fhs/pub/fhs-2.3.html], this should be
/var/lib/monotone. The directory /var/db is normally used for naming service
data (nss_db and nscd, my statement not part of the FHS).
Other applications on Fedora such as PostgreSQL, MySQL and RPM all store their
databases in /var/lib/<application>. Monotone-server should be consistent with this.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum -y install monotone-server
2. /sbin/service monotone start
Database created in /var/db/monotone
Database created in /var/lib/monotone
