The discussion there seems mainly to revolve around the topics of
enlarging members and picking penny stocks:

http://sourceforge.net/mailarchive/forum.php?forum_name=freestandards-fhs-discuss
http://sourceforge.net/mailarchive/forum.php?forum_name=freestandards-ldps

I saw precisely 1 non-spam posting in the last 2 months (and that was
just a question).

This really matters.  If we're going to block projects because they
cannot fulfil FHS requirements (eg. as might have happened to MinGW
because of the /usr/<target> path) then there must be a way to get
changes into the FHS.
