No Files or Directories under /srv, /opt, or /usr/local
The FHS says :
"...no program should rely on a specific subdirectory structure of /srv existing or data necessarily being stored in /srv. However /srv should always exist on FHS compliant systems and should be used as the default location for such data. Distributions must take care not to remove locally placed files in these directories without administrator permission."
The FHS is explicitly handing control of the directory structure under
/srv to the system administrator rather than the distribution. Therefore, no Fedora packages can have any files or directories under
/srv or come preconfigured to use specific files or directories under
In addition, no Fedora package can have any files or directories under
/usr/local, as these directories are not permitted to be used by Distributions in the FHS.
It is important to note that a Fedora package, once installed and configured by a user, can use
/srv as a location for data. The package simply must not do this out of the box
