Packages must not set links with targets pointing into
/var/tmp. The File Hierarchy Standard specifies that such files
may be removed by the administrator and that programs may not depend on
any files in
/tmp being preserved across invocations, which
combined mean that it makes no sense to ship files in these directories.
For more information please consult:
- /tmp : Temporary files (Section 3.18) in the Filesystem Hierarchy Standard
- /var/tmp : Temporary files preserved between system reboots (Section 5.15) in the Filesystem Hierarchy Standard
