The Fedora Packaging Guidelines point at the old FHS site

Hi,

The packaging guidelines pages:

<a href="https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/packaging-guidelines/" title="https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/packaging-guidelines/">https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/packaging-guidelines/</a>
<a href="https://fedoraproject.org/w/index.php?title=Packaging:Guidelines&amp;oldid=528452#Filesystem_Layout" title="https://fedoraproject.org/w/index.php?title=Packaging:Guidelines&amp;oldid=528452#Filesystem_Layout">https://fedoraproject.org/w/index.php?title=Packaging:Guidelines&amp;oldid=5...</a>

still point at the old Filesystem Hierarchy Standard (FHS) site:

<a href="http://www.pathname.com/fhs/" title="http://www.pathname.com/fhs/">http://www.pathname.com/fhs/</a>

This hasn't been updated since something like 2004.

The FHS is now maintained by the Linux Foundation:

FHS 3.0 was released in June 2015.

Maybe this is the better reference:

or
