Filesystem Hierarchy Standard Refresh

I’ve been busy tonight spamming mailing lists and otherwise getting the word out: the LSB workgroup is preparing to update the FHS. This update has been a long time in coming; FHS 2.3 (the current version) was released back in 2004. Since then, a lot has happened, and it’s starting to look like the FHS is holding things back due to the lack of updates.

For the longest time, the FHS was cared for by its original editors: Dan Quinlan, Rusty Russell, and Chris Yeoh. We should all be grateful that they created a useful and well-written standard–one that has been resilient enough to remain useful for six years without changes. Even though it’s time to move on, we should not forget that we are building on a strong foundation they laid for us.

So, you may be asking: how can I help? Glad you asked!
