There are no minutes from the June LSB meeting, so I was unaware that we
have changed direction. :-) Dominique Massonie
(mdomi at users.sourceforge.net) has written the "lsb_release" script per Task
16692.

http://www.debian.org/Lists-Archives/lsb-discuss-0005/msg00070.html
https://sourceforge.net/pm/task.php?func=detailtask&project_task_id=16692&group_id=1107&group_project_id=3049


(See attached file: lsb_release)

Dominique was preparing to write the man page and I was going to CVS check
it in.   Do we (the LSB) want to proceed with the new June workgroup
decision or stay with the May discussion thread?  :-)

Thanks,

Hi Stephan,

This issue was talked about a couple of weeks ago. For the discussion
have a look at the thread starting at:

http://www.debian.org/Lists-Archives/lsb-discuss-0007/msg00048.html

At the last LSB meeting it was decided that this and other information
would be available through an extension to uname.

Chris.
