Re: KDE filesystem structure
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
It seems that your reasoning that "/opt is reserved for things like Loki
games" is incorrect. See my mail titled "Interpeting FHS".
I recommend you to re-read the relevant section of FHS without resorting to
certain preconceptions such as "In Debian /opt is not used". It is written in
a plain and clear English that says no such thing as you say.

That is a serious misunderstanding of "add-on". By add-on here it means
application software that is not essential for system functionality, such as
KDE. Saying that "distribution provided" software is not "add on application
software" is gross misunderstanding of the terms involved.
On the contrary, FHS says distributions can install software in /opt, except
certain subdirs reserved for the system administrator.
Before you give an answer to this, please read the mail I mentioned, and
section 3.8 in complete.
