It has come to my attention that recent decisions made by the Linux
Standard Base body (I hesitate to say "committee" as I have never been
party to any of their internal discussions and am unaware of their

Reasonable objection notwithstanding, I intend to write a letter to those
responsible for the LSB to attempt to raise the issues we have with their
current proposal. I would appreciate discussion on these issues in other
parts of this thread. I encourage those who have a significant opinion
not yet voiced in the LSB thread found on debian-devel to write them down
either as part of the thread or directly to me to aid in the drafting of
For those who missed the thread on -devel, relevant URLs can be found at
"I'm working in the dark here." "Yeah well rumor has it you do your best
work in the dark."
