|Since Redhat control the LSB, the packaging format the LSB would recommend will be RPM.
Think I’m just being paranoid or anti-redhat bashing? Read the current LSB recommendations.
The LSB is a crock of shit and I thank God there’s still sensible people like Patrick Volkerding who refuse to have it corrupt their distribution.
Until the LSB board is not stacked 2-1 with Redhat and pro-Redhat wankers it’s not worth the effort since they might as well just take the waiting period away and say the current LSB is whatever Redhat does.
The bigger problem with a common packaging system is not any personal bias, but the fact that common usually equates to mediocre, since no side wants to give any other more slack lest the new system practically be that existing one. So we’ll end up with all the common, expected features between the three systems I can think of offhand, and none of the good features of any of them.
I don’t believe the Linux Standard should be advocating such a depleted system.
