New submission from Richard Bos <radoeka at xs4all.nl>:

This is a request coming from the porting from openpkg to other distributions      
With the current rules the templates_c directory, that seems to be cache     
for smarty pages is located at /usr/share/php/kolab/admin/templates_c for     
suse.  This does not seem to be the correct location.  A more appropriate     
location would be e.g.: /var/lib/kolab.  This is similar to kolab_statedir     
in the dist_conf/suse file.  For kolab, kolab_statedir has been defined as     
/kolab/var/kolab.  Would it be okay for the kolab project to store the     
templates_c directory as /kolab/var/kolab/templates_c as this would prevent    
yet another build variable?  
Some details:    
templates_c is used in:    
kolab-webadmin/php/admin/include/mysmarty.php.in:     $this->compile_dir =        
This has to be changed to:        
kolab-webadmin/php/admin/include/mysmarty.php.in:     $this->compile_dir =        
With kolab_statedir defined as: kolab_statedir=${localstatedir}/kolab (being        
The current templates_c settings are:    
drwxr-xr-x  2 kolab-n kolab-n 1256 Jan 15        
15:03 /kolab/var/kolab/php/admin/templates_c        
The parent directory has:    
drwxr-xr-x  6 kolab kolab 160 Jul  4  2005 /kolab/var/kolab/php/admin/        
The new parent directory has:     
drwxr-xr-x  6 kolab kolab 360 Feb  5 08:41 /kolab/var/kolab        
The new parent dir has the same settings as the current parent     
directory (/kolab/var/kolab/php/admin/)    
Other files to update:    
kolab-webadmin> grep templates_c $(find -type f)        
kolab-webadmin/kolab-webadmin.spec.in:        %dir '%defattr(-,%{l_nusr},       
%{l_ngrp})' %{l_prefix}/var/kolab/php/admin/templates_c        
kolab-webadmin/Makefile.am:   $(mkinstalldirs)
