Just in time for LinuxCon, we are pleased to announce the first draft of FHS 3.0!
The LSB Workgroup has released update 3 to the Distribution Tests and Application Battery for LSB 4.0.
The Filesystem Hierarchy Standard (FHS) is a reference describing the conventions used for the layout of a UNIX system. It has been made popular by its use in Linux distributions, but it is used by other UNIX variants as well. The Linux Standard Base (LSB) refers to it as a standard.
Call for Participation
The LSB workgroup is preparing FHS 3.0, which will be the first FHS release since 2004. As part of that release, we are soliciting contributions from all interested parties.
The LSB workgroup is an open project, which welcomes contributions from all interested parties.
When targeting Linux as a platform, application developers want to have some assurance that the code they write on one Linux distribution will run on other Linux distributions without having to go through extra effort. This matches their experiences on other popular platforms, such as Windows or Mac OS X.
The LSB workgroup is pleased to announce the immediate availability of the Linux Standard Base (LSB) version 4.1.
The LSB workgroup provides the following documentation resources:
