This covers several things:

1. It requires the manual creation of directories for interprocess sync
That's a valid concern. This looks like the same issue as reported here:

There is also similar issue reported here:

We hope to fix both of them in upcoming 1.6-beta.

If they cover your problem, can you comment on one or both of them? If
not, can you open a new issue in out Kea gitlab:

2. It does not include all the previously-supported database backends,
breaking the service upon upgrade from Fedora Core 29 Server.

This is a packaging problem. Kea still does support MySQL, PostgreSQL
and Cassandra backends. It seems the Fedora 29 packages were built with
PostgreSQL and Fedora 30 were built without it.

Note that the command switch passed to configure to enable specific
backend was --with-dhcp-pgsql, --with-dhcp-mysql and it is now simpler
--with-pgsql and --with-mysql. The older switches are obsolete now (they
work, but there's a warning produced).

Hope that helps,
