I would like to propose that a 30 minute fortnightly conference call be
setup to drive the following as outlined:
1) team mission
for example, http://www.linuxbase.org/
2) team procedures / policies
for example, http://lsbbook.gforge.freestandards.org/org.html
3) general specification process
for example, http://lsbbook.gforge.freestandards.org/spec-expand.html
4) specification selection criteria
for example, http://lsbbook.gforge.freestandards.org/crit.html
5) candidate identification
for example, http://lsbbook.gforge.freestandards.org/candidate.html
6) candidate specification tracking
for example, http://lsbbook.gforge.freestandards.org/tracking.html
In parallel, desktop developers continue to work as usual [but with more
documentation and validation in mind ;-)]. In addition, some write
specifications, and others write conformance test suites.
The end result is a well defined freedesktop.org core to be deployed by the
Linux distributions which is validated by the LSB. freedesktop.org wins,
the LSB wins, the distros win, application developers win, and most
importantly the end-users win. :-)
