Re: host-inspecific configuration files

In the gEDA packages I've put the configuration files in /etc.
Some folks on the geda mailing list say this is wrong; the FHS says that
host-specific configuration files belong in /etc; it doesn't say that all
configuration files belong in /etc, which seems to be how we're using it.
The geda configuration files would by default go into /usr/share/gEDA.
The FHS may not say that all configuration files belong in /etc, but
Debian policy does, as shown in the excerpt below. If you want to
change this policy then maybe you should make a formal proposal on
4.7. Configuration files
Any configuration files created or used by your package should
reside in `/etc'. If there are several you should consider
creating a subdirectory named after your package.
