I can't decipher the deciding factor on where to place "variable program data" for an /opt installed package. On one hand the FHS says to place all variable data that dictates a program's state into /var/lib and that this data should stick around after a reboot. It also says this data is host specific. Now the FHS also says that the /var/opt directory should house opt "variable data". So.. lets just say I have installed a package and I have the option of setting its "working directory (this is how the package names this path)". Where should I put it?
For reference See:
Note that this question naturally extends to /usr/local variable data as well.
