/usr/lib/menu --> /usr/share/menu transition ?



Hello Developers,

The Debian menu system require menu files to be in /usr/lib/menu for 
historical reason. For FHS compliance they should be moved to
/usr/share/menu.

The first step is to upload a new menu package that support menu in both
/usr/lib/menu and /usr/share/menu. The package is ready and will be uploaded
soon.

What need to be decided now is whether packages will be allowed to put menufiles
in /usr/share/menu as soon as the package is uploaded or after sarge is 
released, or something else.

Switching to /usr/share/menu before sarge is released will make packages harder
to backport to woody, with few benefits for the users.

Cheers,
