Section 1.3 Optional functoinality is a special case of Section 1.5
Common directory without one requiring the other. I'd combine them like
I've updated the proposal based on this and other feedback.
And one more idea to throw out there: How sacred is filesystem? How
costly are adding new directories to it? For something like
/etc/prelink.conf.d, adding to filesystem seems like the preferred
option. If there's little cost involved, adding to filesystem for
things like /etc/bash_completion.d also seems like the preferred
solution. If there's no reason we shouldn't be expanding filesystem,
I'd list that as an option in the directory draft as well.
My main objections would be:
1) filesystem started out as just the FHS dirs
2) We don't want a bunch of orphan directories if things like prelink
3) We don't want to tie package submission on changes that would require
updates on unrelated packages in older distributions.
It's a combination of philosophical (#1) and practical (#2 and #3) concerns.
We could expclitly state this in the draft if you want.
