Bug#458352: ITP: lsb-release-info -- ships release information in /etc/lsb-release

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: packages@release.debian.org

Package: lsb-release-info
Maintainer: Debian Release Team <packages@release.debian.org>
Description: ships release information in /etc/lsb-release
 This package ships /etc/lsb-release, which contains information about
 the version of the distribution this package was installed from. See
 /usr/share/doc/lsb-release-info/README for a description of the format
 of that file.
 Please note that the information contained in this file could be *not*
 representative of the actual distribution installed in the system,
 since it may be installed from a newer or older release than the rest
 of the system, or the system may be a mixture of more than one version
 of the distribution.

                                 * * *

Having this package was first proposed by Javier Fernández-Sanguino Peña
[here][1], and revived by [this recent thread][2]. I will upload a
version to unstable with version 99, and later on a version to t-p-u
with version 4.0+lenny. Right before the release of lenny we will upload
to t-p-u again with the final version number; stable point releases are
expected to get an updated version via s-p-u as well.

The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds new
discoveries, is not "Eureka!" (I found it!) but "That's funny..."
