Subject Re: [PATCH] Add LSB layout to config.layout
Date Tue, 06 Aug 2002 21:04:39 GMT


Well, Red Hat is working toward LSB certification, but the apache web
server is not part of the LSB spec. The LSB primarily describes the APIs
and commands needed by applications, so a web server is not included. What
the LSB team is trying to do with apache is show how a popular application
can become LSB compliant and enable it to run unchanged on any LSB
compliant runtime environment. This LSB compliant version of apache will
not replace the ones shipped with the various distributions, but it does
allow the same binary at the same location on the system to work across
multiple distributions.

I hope this explains the rationale for creating an LSB compliant apache
http server.
