Discussion on this is scattered around a whole bunch of places; I probably would have
done something like a github gist or hackmd.io doc, or just a generic web page, and linked
the mail discussions to that.
There was a mail several months or so ago with this github Url, which we
used for the discussions:
We also started to create an openSUSE specific wiki page:
The Subject line of this email is "Re: FYI: opensuse decision
regarding configuration files in /etc and /usr/etc" which makes me think a decision
was made, but what is it exactly?
We have a fairly nontrivial stake in this outcome given that OSTree has been shipping
/usr/etc for *years* and it's worked quite successfully.
We are still in the early state of adjusting the infrastructure/checks and
create PoCs. So it is still changeable if others want to join and come
up with a better alternative name for /usr/etc. But this really requires
a strong commitment to do the same, not that we change the paths and
still nobody follows with this.
