Predictably enough, instead of starting with a sensible practical issue,
the issue that's really getting to me is under what directory structure
to keep the repository?

Basically trying to follow FHS (http://www.pathname.com/fhs):
Currently its all under /opt/media so you'll understand my predicament.
/usr/share/multimedia: seems to fit best with the FHS

If it's part of the OS (managed by RPM), then yeah. Otherwise, you're probably best off with /usr/local/share/whatever. That's pretty much the point of local.


good point.


Another FHS 2.3 option would be /srv/multimedia, since your purpose is to
share this data out over some network protocol.


Haven't come across the /srv option before. Appears to be a sensible
place - also appears to be better suited to ftp and http directories
than the traditional /var/ftp and /var/http

/srv is new and that's the point of having it. I do think that the /srv is for server-related files, etc. This case is more like a network share.
