The editorial revision of LSB 2.0 known as LSB 2.0.1 is
now ready for general review. This revision addresses 
editorial cleanups identified prior to doing the 
submission of LSB 2.0 to ISO.  The review period begins
today, October 7, and will end in two weeks on October 21.

There are not intended to be functional changes; for 
certification purposes, 2.0 and 2.0.1 will be identical
and it is not anticipated that the software deliverables
will be reissued for 2.0.1.

The changes made to 2.0.1 are tracked via the LSB bugzilla
bug 473, here:


That bug contains references to the bugs which were 
addressed for this release.

The specification itself is available from the usual place,


Please make comments in the LSB bugzilla, using Product
"Specification" and Version "2.0.1"; pick the appropriate
Component as usual. Email comments on lsb-spec or lsb-wg 
are also be accepted, but since our formal tracking method
is the bugzilla that means they have to be entered into 
the bugzilla by someone, with the following drawbacks:
* probable time delay
* possibility of loss of detail/intent in transcription
* won't automatically email comments/resolutions
  back to the submitter
So using the bugzilla is /highly/ recommended. An account
is needed for submission/comment, but it's a relatively 
low-cost operation to create one.

Note that the ISO submission will not incldue the C++ 
module, although that module is required for  LSB 2.0 

Note also that there continue to be issues with the two 
architectures which were not released for 2.0, ppc32 
and s390. The ppc32 changes are apparently complete, 
but need a final verification pass and will be posted 
shortly.  There is no current estimate for resolution 
of the s390 issues which are related to C++ library 
symbols (the LSB database still does not match 
implementations here).
