Re: provide the lsb packages

What I've done in Red Hat Linux is I think the best approach.  I've
added a keystone package called 'redhat-lsb' that requires things on
the system in order to make it LSB compliant.  It in turn Provides the
lsb dependency.

See the binary and source RPMS:


Currently I auto-generate the .spec file with some shell scripting.
It would be nice to make the .spec file from the lsb database.

Feel free to direct any comments to me.
