How do changes to the FHS actually happen ? All I can find is the names
of the three past editors of the standard, and a mailing list that seems
to be overrun by spam.
There doesn't seem to be any body/group that meets regularly to resolve
issues and work towards an FHS update.
Maybe it is time to set up such a group, e.g., by letting each distro
put one representative forward that will discuss and vote on FHS changes
on that distro's behalf. I think the group that Lennart worked with is a
very encouraging sign that something like this is possible.
