As far as I know, we *are* compliant. If you install a few lsb-*
packages on your Debian system, then you get an LSB-compliant system.
You probably mix two concepts: the one of being compliant, and the
one of being certified. I believe the certification process is long
and involves lots of money and administrative tasks. We, the Debian
project, as a volunteer one, have not (yet?) gone for the
certification process. But I'm sure we'd welcome any offer for help
on that path.
