Discussion of LSB 2.0: ISO Update: must track every change we've made since the ISO DIS 23360 submission. (Nov 10 - May 10 is the ballot period). In the US: ANSI (outsources to INCITS, Study Group on Linux (SGL), chaired by Dave Thewlis. Comments to SGL by mid-Feb, SGL will roll up US position by mid-March and propose to INCITS March-April). Comments not likely to come in until May. Votes can be: yes, yes-with-comments, or no-with-comments. May-June we evaluate list of comments - need to have editor's meeting. FSG can "vote" yes-with-comments to file. Editor will produce diffmarked version in April - make sure it's either in the US position or in the FSG Cat. A Liaison vote. Needs 50% JTC1 votes, 50% of those in favor.
Today certification version is too closely linked to spec version; can adjust this so that certification is against a series, but need to control the scope of changes very carefully.
Discussion on naming of this release worked off this email from A.Josey
The workgroup wants to call this LSB 2.1.
Proposed Policy 0xx: LSB Specification Versioning Policy.
It should be noted this policy results in binary compatibility across major versions of the specification.
Due to ISO implications it is recommeneded that changes to the core or ISO-standardized modules need to be done with extreme care.
(file bug to include this in the specification once approved)
Tuesday afternoon: bugs
Discussion: if there's an admin module in the future, should it get "set" type commands that require privilege, or should they remain together with their "get" analogues (when there are paired sets)
Jim Zemlin presented.
how are we going to improve testing?
