Interesting, what is to happen with /var/games ?
The latest suggestion on list was to leave directories in place marked
So far i've got a patch to remove them, and i'll put one together
marking them deprecated and referring to /var/lib/games (and friends).
If we go with the 'mark deprecated' approach everything can still keep
behaving the way it was, and migrate over as they see fit.
And what do we want to happen with /var/games ?
Also wrt /var/games, from my pov it is not worth the effort to
mv highscore files for existing games from there to
/var/lib/games (or the other way around). This will require
always fragile pre/post install scripts for very little gain,
so my proposal is to leave the location of global highscore
files unchanged for existing packages.
