Traditionally we have used the ./HOWTO which has the nice diplomatic
benefit of letting OSWG HOWTOs in as well. Keeping that makes it
easier to find the documents.

The manpages go into predefined directories so those are clear.

Then there are the guides, where should those go? Here ./LDP might
be a good idea.

Finally (?) there are the sub directories for the various
formats, languages, compression etc.

There is a mailing list but response is underwhelming. I mailed
once asking for comments to my Multi Disk HOWTO and got just one
reply. Mailing list info is available at

I suspect they will see the LDP subhierarchy as outside the scope
of the FHS.
