Ok, if I understand well, on the Fedora/Red Hat packaging front, the 
consensus seems to be :
- site-specific web apps could be in /srv/ww (but depanding on local choice)
- OS packaged web apps shoud be in /usr/share/%{name} instead of 

So I made my question more simple :
- is /usr/share/%{name} the default directory for centos extras 
repository packaged %{name} web apps ?
- would /usr/share/%{name} be the default directory for rpmRepo 
repository packaged %{name} web apps ?
