Bug#2180: There should be a fsstnd arbitrator

Package: (project)

There should be a FSSTND arbitrator which could give an "official"
interpretation of the fsstnd mandates. I am the maintainer of the
timezone packages and I seem to disagree with a user on where a file
should go (currently /usr/sbin/zdump). Our interpretations of the fsstnd
are different. We could go on forever closing and reopening a bug report
dealing with the location of a file. Someone should arbitrate those

Besides, I think that the fsstnd is too imprecise regarding the location
of files in sbin directories. I consider this to be a bug of the fsstnd
itself. However, I think there is no pseudopackage called (fsstnd) or
(layout). Who is the Debian fsstnd maintainer? He should forward this bug
report to the upstream maintainers, once I find out how to submit it :-)
