The Linux Standard Base (LSB) 2.0

" In an effort to help ensure standardization, the Free Standards Group has officially released the Linux Standard Base (LSB) 2.0, a specification composed of interoperability standards, a base set of APIs and libraries and developer environments and test suites.

The goal of LSB is to prevent the fragmentation of Linux and to ensure a degree of interoperability with LSB-compliant application software across LSB-compliant Linux distributions.

LSB 2.0 supports Single Unix Specification 3.0 and new architectures, including AMD64 Opteron, IBM PowerPC 64, S390 and S390X. A new C++ application binary interface has also been added to LSB 2.0, which is expected to significantly improve code interoperability due to the pervasiveness of C++ coded applications.

According to Jim Zemlin, executive director of the Free Standards Group, the LSB specification should succeed where previous attempts at Unix standardization have failed..."

To Debian. I would like Debian to use LSB 2.0. It would help Linux distros like Linspire. Please do this. : - )

Thank you.
