I agree, which is why you can't this all happen under /srv.
No. That means you partition /srv in an rpm-controlled part, and a
free-for-all part. This way you can have sane pre-configured defaults,
and people can do something else if they really want to.
The current habit of shunning /srv at all costs results in:
— defaults not being pre-configured & installed because the sane place
to put them is blacklisted
— or defaults that can not serve as examples (because their layout has
no relation with the /srv/ users are supposed to use), confuse scripts
(again because of the layout mismatch), confuse security policies, etc
You can have a /srv/default and a /srv/local, or a /srv and /local/srv,
or whatever but two totally different policies is just shooting
ourselves in the foot.
