Re: /opt/ again (was Re: FreeBSD-like approach for Debian? [was:

/opt             Third party commercial packages
/usr/local       Sysadmins local additions
/usr/packages    Just an "interface" for Debian emulating /usr/ports in BSD

Having a BSD style unified source tree for the base does NOT require one to
stick "packages" in /usr/local.  It doesn't even require any changes to what
we are doing now.  The Reference Base Im working on now would essentially
replace a dozen or so "Required" packages in Debian.  And should be "drop
onto-able" for any other LSB compliant Linux without any disruption.  Get
the tar.gz, plump it onto your disk.
