5.12. /var/opt : Variable data for /opt

5.12.1. Purpose

Variable data of the packages in /opt must be installed in /var/opt/<subdir>, where <subdir> is the name of the subtree in /opt where the static data from an add-on software package is stored, except where superseded by another file in /etc. No structure is imposed on the internal arrangement of /var/opt/<subdir>.


Refer to the rationale for /opt.
