I'm wondering if anybody has agreed on a user equivalent of the global
/opt directory, for third-party packages that are distributed as a tarball to be unpacked as a single directory. Examples include Firefox Beta, Tor Browser, and innumerable others.
In the past I've left them wherever I unpacked them, either in my home, in
~/Downloads, or in other random places, but now I'd like to sort the mess.
I'm thinking either
~/.opt, but I'm wondering if there is any standard place that I'm overlooking.
