Per my action item below here are some links to review.

We can use, if we desire -- and I suggest we do as the model is proven,

The actual policy goverening the certification can be read at:

The product standard and conformance statement references can be found at:

All LSB test suites, for past as well as current specs can be found
at: ftp://ftp.freestandards.org/pub/lsb/test_suites/

These and anything else we should need to review for discussion about
certification testing can all be found at:

For guidance on writing tests also see the TET Programmers Guide:

Hope this give you enough to get started with.
