I'm happy to announce that the 2.2-beta release of the Filesystem
Hierarchy Standard (FHS) is out.  The public review begins now and will
end at 09:00 in Universal Coordinated Time, 31 March 2001.  After the
public review is finished, we will release FHS 2.2.

Please see http://www.pathname.com/fhs/2.2-beta/review.html for more
details about the public review, to download 2.2-beta, and to see the
CVS log.

I would also like to thank Paul `Rusty' Russell, editor of FHS 2.2, for
his recent work on FHS.  If you see him, please buy him a beer or
whatever his beverage of choice happens to be.  The same goes for Alan
Cox for helping us resolve some FHS 2.2-beta issues.

With Rusty is taking some time off, I'll be handling the beta, so please
send comments to the mailing list using the procedure described on the
review page.
