I've drafted this pagehttp://wiki.laptop.org/go/XS_Directory_Layout as
a quick informational guide for what layout we expect from an RPM (or
deb) package. The short of it is: follow Debian's FHS, and we might
grant (and document there) exceptions as we learn more about the
limits of FHS ;-)

Ernie - you know more about Java packaging, perhaps this is a good
chance to help us. The Debian policy on Java is probably a bit stale,
we can be more pragmatic where appropriate.
