Description

By default, ndns creates a /var/ndns directory for its database. It is generally discouraged to create app-specific directories as direct children of /var.
The FHS 3.0 says:

Applications must generally not add directories to the top level of /var. Such directories should only be added if they have some system-wide implication, and in consultation with the FHS mailing list.

History

#1 Updated by Davide Pesavento 29 days ago

A subdir of /var/lib would be more appropriate.

#3 Updated by Davide Pesavento 28 days ago

Note that the PPA package compensates by passing --localstatedir=/var/lib to waf.
