I just wanted to ask: can we expect, in future versions of a Gentoo Linux, a
move of /usr/portage to /var/portage as the most appropriate place to store
frequently changing portage tree?
I guess, it (Gentoo) would then suit most admins, willing to have a Gentoo
Linux on their servers (I use Gentoo on my servers :-P). Because, for
example, in my case, I have /usr always mounted ro (read-only) in fstab,
remounting it rw (read-write) for critical updates only (when I emerge some
new apps; e.g. security updates)
How does it intersect with FHS (Filesystem Hierarchy Standard)?
Thank you very much!
With the best regards,
