Thanks for you comments Dennis.
I did some searching for a definition of the Linux Directory Structure that is
more definitive that my own understanding. Most definitions seemed to agree
that /usr/lib was for libraries or program parts used by programs in /usr/bin.
I didn't see anything that required the programs or program parts be compiled.
Since we routinely put non-binaries like shell scripts and python modules in
/usr/bin, I still assert that putting python modules in /usr/lib is acceptable.
As mentioned, other fedora packages such as yum already set some precedent for
this. Since /usr/bin/goferd loads these modules, it seems to fit. That said,
I also read that /opt is for optional program parts, extensions or resources
for programs in /usr/bin. If determined that /usr/lib is not an acceptable
location for gofer plugin modules, I think /opt/gofer/plugins would be a good
As for /var/lib/gofer/journal, based on my research, I /think/
/usr/share/gofer/journal would be a better location for this. The /usr/share
directory seems to be for "shared" data. I'll try it this morning and see
rpmlint will find this location more acceptable.
