I wanted to bring up a topic for general discussion to solicit opinions.
Currently, the validation suites will install their packages in the
following directory: /usr/lib/cglvalidation
All of the tests expect this to be the root of the validation suites.
However, the File System Hierarchy Standard states that /usr/lib
"include object files, libraries, and internal binaries
that are not intended to be executed directly by users
or shell scripts."
The validation suite violates this policy. CGL has a requirement to
be LSB compliant. The LSB indirectly references the FHS 2.2 in their
There is nothing that explicitly states that one cannot place the test
suites in /usr/lib, but it should probably be moved to a better location
such as /home or /opt.
Are there pros or cons to changing the location of the suites? Would a
certification body be OK with test suites loaded on a test system in
