This is the new version of the Debian "FHS" patch. From the earlier
discussion, changes proposed here seemed to be the most acceptable
from Jerry's point of view.
The more debatable changes (those related to cache_path) have been
moved to a separate patch.
The point is doing the following associations:
- non discardable state data (all TDB files that may need to be backed
up) go to statedir
- shared data (codepage stuff) go to codepagedir
The patch *does not change* the default location for these
directories. So, there is no behaviour change when applying it.
The main change is for samba developers who have to think when dealing
with files that previously pertained to libdir whether they:
- go in statedir
- go in codepagedir
- stay in libdir
Of course, newly introduced files in the future will need discussion
about the most appropriate place. That could require changes to the
