That's bad, and exactly what would/could happen with my proposal. Even
if we swap the direction of the symlinks, it would still break in the
other way i.e. if you tried to do the same thing under
/opt/fedora-ds/slapd-instance/config - and if you tried to
backup/restore with tar, you would either be getting only the symlinks,
or if following symlinks, they would be broken upon restore.
So, is there a way to have both? If not symlinks, then what?
If the FHS layout is used, but all of the actual directory data winds up
under something like /var/lib/fedora-ds/<instance-name>/, wouldn't that
suffice for making backup/restores easy and the like? Maybe there would
also be a corresponding /etc/fedora-ds/<instance-name> directory for
config files and such, but the actual DBs under /var. I normally don't
worry too much about backing up executables and libraries that are just
stock RPMs as I can always recreate that portion of the environment.
The data is certainly the other story.
