Moin! I've received several requests to update woody in order to make it compliant with the LSB (which version btw.?), including one from the DPL. Hence, it may be worth discussing the possibility. Below are several tasks where YOUR HELP is required. According to Anthony we need <http://people.debian.org/~ajt/lsb/dists/woody/lsb/main/binary-i386/> Updated alien Updated glibc Updated kernel-(headers|source|image) 2.4.19 Updated pax The glibc changes are in unstable and upstream CVS, and have already been tested in released versions of Red Hat, SuSE and probably other distributions. The kernel changes have been tested everywhere that runs 2.4.19. The pax changes are straightforward and have been tested in both testing and unstable for a couple of months. The alien changes have been in testing and unstable for a similar amount of time. Changes in the kernel most probably means that the security updates would have to be altered again. Same thing for glibc. Unfortunately I can't find the source for the above packages. I also remember some talk about start-stop-daemon having to be altered. What about this one? There's also an upload to woody-proposed-updates of the lsb package which says "Support LSB 1.2 in woody. Includes all changes through 1.2-6 in sid." HELP REQUIRED ------------- Task: Find source for the above packages Task: Review and discuss the changes against original packages Task: Review the LSBvN and discuss whether only these four packages need to be updated or whether more require an update Task: Find out whether the lsb package is required Task: Review the changes in the lsb package Task: Find out which LSB spec we would like to meet, v1.9 is out for reviewing The discussion of the above items should take place on the newly created debian-lsb list. I'm only starting the discussion on debian-devel and debian-release in order to attract more people and since only one mail has been sent to the -lsb list yet, so it may not be widely known.
