Linux Foundation needs feedback on update to FHS
Linux.com reports that just before LinuxCon North America in Vancouver, The Linux Foundation released a draft proposal for an update to the Linux Filesystem Hierarchy Standard (FHS). Versions of the draft (in plain text, HTML and PDF versions) can be found at http://dev.linuxfoundation.org/~licquia/fhs-3.0-drafts/.
This draft removes quite a few historical filesystem artifacts, such as /usr/X11R6 and subdirectories in /usr/bin and adds many recent developments, including /sys and /run.
Draft 1 is aimed at getting the normative text of the standard out there for review; thus, a number of issues with formatting, editorial statements and references are still missing. Nonetheless, this draft accurately reflects the restrictions and obligations that will likely be a part of FHS 3.0 in the end.
Feedback is appreciated and very much desired. Comments should be sent to the FHS mailing list (fhs-discuss (at) lists.linuxfoundation.org),
