I'm thinking of creating a staging area for data that would reside in it's own directory structure separate from st:sites or user_homes. I would use this to store data that would then be validated, processed and released to users via some custom UI. In a sense, my goal is to be able to be able to perform large-scale data imports into this staging area on a separate machine than the production user server. I release I could create a unique user account to achieve this, but I'm thinking of keeping it separate from the user directories.
There seem to be two places to create this folder:
Under the ROOT folder, similar to categoryRoot or under Company Home.
Is either one of these possibilities advisable?
Thanks for any suggestions.
