Cool! Sounds vaguely familiar. Here's the link:


And it even mentions '/srv/cvs' as an example. Furthermore, it
sounds like /srv's substructure is pretty well open/anarchic.
Wonder when it came about. Seems like a necessary afterthought,
similar to /opt.

Great point. That's how I ended up with /localdisk/svn in one of
my prior setups. Sounds like now I'll settle on something like
/srv/svn/[public] (thanks Karl for the public vs private

In practice, FHS is often disregarded, at least in the labs I've
been around. But I do like that the standard exists, and I for
one will try to follow it.

Thanks for the insights everyone.
