The LSB has too many important parties with conflicting interests to 
actually accomplish anything. Package management is no exception. They 
will have more luck standardizing vi vs emacs.

Someone needs to think up something smart, implement it well, and dump 
it on everyone's laps. That's the only way this moves forward. It's the 
only way ANYTHING moves forward in Free Software, so I'm not sure why 
everyone is suddenly so keen on forming committees.

The LSB people will just talk themselves to death but never accomplish 
anything. I don't mean to be pessimistic, but thus far they're batting 
0.0000 as far as I'm aware.
