Yes, I will be there.

	Since you'll be there, please raise the issue of the LSB not
publishing source in a timely manner and in a convenient format for the
LSB development tools[1]. Currently, when they remember to publish source,
they do it as a set of individual source rpms instead of a single .tgz which
would be much easier to deal with.

	I've filed a bug on this[2], and discussed it with a member of the LSB
for several months prior to that, but last time I checked a couple of week ago,
nothing has changed.

	As it is, I've all but decided to orphan, or request the removal
of the packages because they are more of a pain to maintain than I think
they are worth, given the few (if any) users of the packages. Please note,
I'm only talking about the development related packages, not the run-time
support packages such as lsb-base, et al.
