Re: directory to store TLE files

Good idea. However since /usr is supposed to contain read-only data how can the TLE be updated (except by root)? It seems like /var might be better but there is no place under /var that really fits this type of data. The closest thing I see is /var/lib but that is not a great match to this type of data.

OK all you satellite users, where would we like to put the TLE files for

programs packaged for Debian, they all store the TLE files in their own

I think (big mistake, I know) someplace like /usr/share/tle or
/usr/share/satellite-elements is logical.
