I'd like to set up a mercurial repo on a linux machine. Originally, I was going to set it up in my home directory but a lot of different users are going to be accessing it so it doesn't seem like the best place. Can anybody recommend a better location? Or should I just go with the home dir and set the permissions accordingly?

which distro is that? – Mahmoud Hossam Sep 18 '09 at 23:38
It's running Debian. – Evan Fosmark Sep 19 '09 at 5:38

/srv is the place recommended by the FHS: "site-specific data which is served by this system."

I think the "usual" place would be under /var/local..
