I noticed that the package git-daemon-run by default expects the repositories
it serves to be located in /var/cache/git. This behavior contradicts the FHS
/var/cache is intended for cached data from applications. Such data is
locally generated as a result of time-consuming I/O or calculation.
The application must be able to regenerate or restore the data.
The application must always be able to recover from manual deletion of
these files (generally because of a disk space shortage).
This sets people up to have their entire repositories deleted by an admin
looking to free disk space.
I realize that the README.Debian for this
package suggests that the repositories themselves should be symbolic links, but
it seems dangerous all the same. I think we should change the default to
