5 Nope. As you've been told, /home is site specific and can be setup in
6 multiple ways that are incompatible with the package manager installing
7 things there (the only exception being baselayout creating the directory
8 itself).
10 Quoting FHS-3.0 again:
12 | On large systems (especially when the /home directories are shared
13 | amongst many hosts using NFS) it is useful to subdivide user home
14 | directories. Subdivision may be accomplished by using subdirectories
15 | such as /home/staff, /home/guests, /home/students, etc.
17 So, how are you going to detect if such a scheme is used on the system,
18 and in which subdirectory the amavis user should be placed?
20 I also wonder why you would send this patch, when there wasn't a single
21 voice supporting your proposition in the other thread and several
22 opposing ones.
