I have problems to understand that.

We also need to agree on what LSB does not mean. This is what the others
of us are doing ;-)


PS: I'm not working for a distributor nor for an ISV. I'm a freelancer
doing documentation and authoring and teaching and I may well have other
problems as distributors and ISVs with this wild Linux thing. I'm also
interested in getting an useful Linux Standard Base, though. Is LSB
really just about ISVs and distributors?
