In addition, I know the LSB project would be interested,
and while I can't promise direct help, I know we can
test some stuff. We produce a "sample implementation"
demonstrating a conforming LSB distribution, and it's
most easily deployed via UML. On ia32, that is. On
the other two current architectures, ppc32 and ia64,
there's not a working UML to use. =20
