No, I suggested to create that directory in the OpenRC service not in
the package function. Did you even read your own reference?

Turns out: OpenSSH creates /var/empty in the package function and it
creates it again in the OpenRC service:


I personally believe that this is a fault in the OpenSSH aport. Still
the question remains what the best way to create that directory is…I
personally dislike the creation of /var/empty in the package() function.
Maybe we should simply create that in alpine-baselayout?
