      As part of enabling OCP CoreOS Layering for third party components, we will need to allow for package installation to /opt. Many OEMs and ISVs install to /opt and it would be difficult for them to make the change only for RHCOS. Meanwhile changing their RHEL target to a different target would also be problematic as their customers are expecting these tools to install in a certain way. Not having to worry about this path will provide the best ecosystem partner and customer experience.


      • Document how 3rd party vendors can be compatible with our current offering.
      • Provide mechanism for 3rd party vendors or their customers to provide information for exceptions that require an RPM to install binaries to /opt as an install target path.
