Description Nicolas Mailhot 2008-11-10 10:40:39 UTC
As explained in

conf.avail can be considered an FHS violation

Can it be moved somewhere in /usr/share?

We'd like to make font packages use the conf.d/conf.avail split in Fedora 11 but our package auditing tools do not like an /etc/fonts/conf.avail read-only directory at all, strongly hinting the current default should be changed.

And if it has to be changed we'd rather it was changed before scores of packages depend on the current default.

Fedora 11 packaging cycle will open soonish.

If we could have an opinion on the correct directory name that would un-block our font guideline change process started there
