Just for completeness can I ask if the current info at
http://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/Fedora/14/html/Storage_Administration_Guide/s1-filesystem-fhs.html
and
http://www.pathname.com/fhs/

are in fact the latest? If not can someone point to the source of the
most current version of the info?

Thanks

Someone should ask matti or davem to setup a new ml on vger.

Distributions, and others companies interested in LiNUX/*BSD/UN*X.
FHS is not only for LiNUX.

I wonder if the LSB folks feel responsible for this. Not that I was a
big fan of the LSB work (making up "standards" out of thin air and
stuff), but there's at least somebody commited to standards.
