Description Leonid Volnitsky 2009-08-11 14:41:55 UTC
How users and applications are going to use and share app data under /usr/share if path is always changing after app upgrade?  For exampe how can I put /usr/share/apache-2.2.11-r2/webroot/icons/  directory in httpd.conf?

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. configure apache
2. upgrade apache
3. apache config is broken now

I'd say copy it to a "stable" directory and update whenever you feel like it.
I don't see how that can be fixed in general.
