There's no that much real downstream 
Fedora, openSUSE, gentoo, Mageia, Debian (then its derivative)

As upstream a recommended way where to install mapserv all the same
should be possible or at least not impossible.

I'm not that aware of the global process but an RFC (or issue) and call for 
participate could be a start

What the other think about it ?
