Subject Re: [PATCH] Add LSB layout to config.layout
Date Tue, 06 Aug 2002 20:56:57 GMT

Raymond,

Thanks for pointing out the flaw in the new LSB layout. I took your advice
and modified it to be about the same as the /opt layout with the prefix
changing to lsb-apache. Below is the new version of the patch. Let me know
if this patch is okay.

Also, the FSG will be holding a press conference next Wednesday at
LinuxWorld Expo in San Francisco to announce the official LSB certification
of several Linux distributions. Now that the LSB team has created an LSB
compliant version of the apache http server we would like to say something
about this to the press. We will be doing something similar with Samba. It
would be great if we could get someone from the apache team to join us at
the press conference. The LSB team would like to create the LSB compliant
binary for apache and do the legwork to get it officially LSB certified.
This would allow apache to become one of the first applications to become
certified. Hopefully, we could make this binary available on the apache
download site and mention this at the press conference.

If you have any questions about this, let me know. Thanks for your time and
consideration.

Regards,

Marvin Heffler
