One point of interest. Such directory name changes would have to be applied to the trunk. It is too late to get these types of changes applied to the official release of 3.5.0. In that light, we can bump up the proposed directory to fdo-3.6.0 or I am open to suggestions.

Cross posting to mapguide-internals since both projects are impacted...
Ok. Sounds good. Is everyone ok with /opt/osgeo/fdo-3.5.0 and /opt/osgeo/mapguide-2.2.0 for install directories?
I dug around a bit looking at .deb and .rpm naming conventions and came up with the following. "changenum" is the Subversion changeset number for the respective repository. Differences in "_" and "-" are significant. Ubuntu/Debian and CentOS/Fedora seem to have slightly different naming conventions.
The various providers would require an appropriate installation of fdo-core (ie. greater than or equal to the version it was built with). And for MapGuide,
And MapGuide would also require an appropriate installation of fdo-core (ie. greater than or equal to the version it was built with).

I'd suggest that if you're installing under osgeo (which makes sense to me) that you drop the "opensource" part of "mapguideopensource" as we have on the windows installer.
