@firda The Debian package base-files adds a /var/local directory.

@firda No, only unchanging files should be in /usr; changing files should be below /var. There is a /var/local directory, I believe. But again, read the FHS and investigate other software. If the data files are primarily served to other systems over the network, /srv might also be a good choice. Again, the FHS gives no easy clear-cut answers, so you’ll have to decide yourself.

comment How to start process as a daemon?
It's not that simple. You should at least do a double fork, and also setsid(). And what about stdout/stderr? Simpler to just use the python-daemon module.

@codewaggle Thanks; option added. When I wrote the answer back in '09, the option was not needed, but times change.
