Those config files are basically examples of how to set up config files, or starting points to bootstrap from. At least this is how I believe most people use them. Thats why /usr/share was chosen. Possibly they should be in /usr/share/doc?

Hi Hedayat, thanks for the quick reply!


If all what I said applies to these configuration files, I think they
completely satisfy "read only architecture independent data files".
I thought about your reasoning. But there are device files and the like
specified in the config files which may change.
Well, if they are going to be modified themselves then /usr is not an appropriate location.

 Additionally to create a
new configuration most of the time you start by copying an existing
config file, being able to do this in the very same directory makes
things simpler. Additionally having some config files in /usr/share and
some in /etc seems odd.
If player allows; people will probably put their own config files in their home directories or something like that. There is no need to put them in /etc.

Anyway, thanks for your efforts;

I'd like to hear more opinions, but I tend to the /etc solution atm.
