I have started to share my /usr/pkg with another computer to use some
programs. One of them is samba... and I have several problems because
of having configuration files under /usr/pkg/etc.
First one is that I mount /usr/pkg read only, so I can't modify conf
files from the client machine. Second one is that I do not want to
share the same configuration over machines, and you know, some samba
config files are private (smbpasswd) so they mustn't be shared.
My proposal is the following: we would move /usr/pkg/etc to /etc/pkg
(or something like this); this way we have full control on client
machines and specific configuration is not shared.
We would maintain though some example configuration files under
/usr/pkg/share/examples (i.e. /usr/pkg/share/examples/samba)
so clients would copy the example on their own machines and then edit.
Apart from this, it would also be interesting that packages which
install something under /usr/pkg have a MESSAGE that said which they
have installed there.
What do you think of these?
