Talk:Web application package guidelines
"/var and /etc/ files and/or directories should be symlinked into /usr/share/webapps/$pkgname."
This should be the other way around IMHO; configuration should live in /etc and /usr should be read-only.
- IMHO we shouldn't symlink at all since it causes bugs in some webapps. See this bugreport.

Change file system layout
If you got more than one instance of a particular webapp running on your machine the configuration files and variable data files will conflict. We should consider the Gentoo approach:
- Install a webapp to /usr/share/webapps/$pkgname or /usr/lib/webapps/$pkgname
- Use a tool like webapp-config to clone instances.
