I'd appreciate if you could provide us with the Debian package sources
(at least the .dsc and possible patches).  ftp-master.debian.org has
been shutdown temporarily [1] and I'd like to see in particular how
you've defined installation file/dir owner and permissions as I'm trying
to enhance the current RPM package specification
(opendnssec-1.0.0/contrib/opendnssec.spec) to meet Fedora packaging
requirements [2].

A vote for FHS compliance from myself, too.  It's a requirement
[2] for e.g.  Fedora Linux and EPEL packages, too.  But if FHS does
not suit FreeBSD etc. it would be okay to mangle /var/opendnssec ->
/var/lib/opendnssec in the RPM package.


PS. Thanks to Andy (@nominet) for the current opendnssec.spec.  It has 
saved us a lot of time already.
