3.13. Software Collection Configuration Files Support

By default, configuration files in a Software Collection are stored within the /opt/provider/%{scl} file system hierarchy.
To make configuration files more accessible and easier to manage, you are advised to use the nfsmountable macro that redefines the _sysconfdir macro. This results in configuration files being created underneath the /etc/opt/provider/%{scl}/ directory, outside of the /opt/provider/%{scl} file system hierarchy.
For example, a configuration file example.conf is normally stored in the /etc directory in the base system installation. If the configuration file is a part of a software_collection Software Collection and the nfsmountable macro is defined, the path to the configuration file in software_collection is as follows:
/etc/opt/provider/software_collection/example.conf
For more information about using the nfsmountable macro, see Section 3.1, “Using Software Collections over NFS”.
