Re: Uploaded faqomatic 2.506-2 (source all) to master
The point is that it would only be modified once, when set up. Certainly
not any more frequently than one would mount /usr read-write to update it.
In any case, this discussion is pretty much moot as I've hacked the fom
file to use /etc/fom.conf in the 2.506-3 release.
(note, I will consider unhacking it if there is enough demand from people
who actually use the package)
You could do like I just did yesterday in the autoconf package and
make the file in /usr a link to the conffile in /etc, and handle it in
preinst something like this:
#! /bin/sh -e
test -e /etc/autoconf/acconfig.h && exit 0
test -f /usr/lib/autoconf/acconfig.h || exit 0
mkdir -p /etc/autoconf
mv /usr/lib/autoconf/acconfig.h /etc/autoconf/acconfig.h
ln -si /etc/autoconf/acconfig.h /usr/lib/autoconf/acconfig.h
Then include the /usr link and the /etc conffile in the binary package
