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.

Just going by what I see in other packaged software, it appears that mysql and postgresql use /var/lib also. If that's not correct, then two very large database packages are wrong. ;-)
