Re: [kde] setting an /opt precedent

If you are talking about random add-on packages that 
is distributed from kde.org or whatever else,
that would be fine, as long as it is independent from Debian.

We, as Debian, do not use /opt.

We reserve it for third party software.

There might be a third party software which may want to install in 

We allow that to happen.

Please read and understand the policy, and why we have a good
reputation on not having touched /usr/local.
