Well, if you're going to have a policy shoot-out: http://www.debian.org/doc/packaging-manuals/fhs/fhs-4.4.html > /usr/lib includes object files, libraries, and internal binaries > that are not intended to be executed directly by users or shell > scripts. > > Applications may use a single subdirectory under /usr/lib.

I think most of us would agree that .py(c) files are *libraries* and not *data files*. Data files would be the skeleton instance directory. Perhaps it is a little premature preaching about conformance to the FHS when Zope's package doesn't conform to the Python policy (to which I cannot link because I cannot find a static URL - see /usr/share/doc/python/python-policy.txt.gz). > Debian has choosed to be be strictly compliant to FHS, including > it in the Debian Packaing Policy. As demonstrated, Python complies with the FHS. I see no active or archived "serious policy violation" bugs relating to Python's FHS compliance. What is the status of the Python Policy? a. -- Adrian van den Dries [EMAIL PROTECTED] Development team www.dev.flow.com.au FLOW Communications Pty.
