Someone here has asked me for EPF Composer on Linux. I've unpacked
epf-composer-1.0.2-linux.tar.gz under a Linux file server directory
/usr/local/pkg/epf-composer-1.0.2 visible to all our Linux desktop clients
here. I've arranged that a two-line shell script be callable as
/usr/local/bin/epf which calls /usr/local/pkg/epf-composer-1.0.2/epf - and
this starts fine. I'm wondering how similarly to make one copy of OpenUP,
XP and Scrum available to all the Linux clients.

I've read the installation instructions on the download pages for OpenUP,
XP and Scrum on
http://www.eclipse.org/epf/downloads/openup/openup_downloads .php,
http://www.eclipse.org/epf/downloads/xp/xp_downloads.php and
http://www.eclipse.org/epf/downloads/scrum/scrum_downloads.p hp,
respectively. Taking OpenUp as an example, which has files
OpenUP_Basic_published-0.9-20061002.zip and
OpenUP_library-0.9-20061002.zip. The instructions say:

>Published Web site
>
> 1. Delete previous installations of the published web site.
> 2. Unzip the downloaded zip file.
> 3. This creates the following folder structure: "Publish\". Go into
this directory and launch index.html.
>
>Method Library
>
> 1. Delete previous installations of the method library.
> 2. Unzip the downloaded zip file.
> 3. Open EPF Composer, menu File->Open, then point to the folder where
you unzipped the library (where library.xmi file is)

Does each user have to make a copy of each of the two zip files in their
own directory, unzip them and follow the instructions above to make them
available to EPF Composer? Or can I unpack the files once for all users to
share? Such shared files are usually owned by user 'bin'.
