Circa 2002-Mar-02 23:46:46 -0500 dixit Joey Hess:

: People talk about deb's and rpm's and so forth. "lsb package" is
: unwieldly on the toungue, might as well call it a ".lsb".

Hmmm ... be careful here.  Someone is bound to think you were talking
about an '.slp' (Stampede Linux Package, [remember those?]).

[Insert smiley here, but only half-jokingly].

I don't have a problem with '.lsb' as a recommended extension for
LSB-compliant packages.  I do have a problem with:

  Use lsb-rpm to install lsb-vendorproductstuff.lsb on your LSB system,
  as per the LSB.

Too many L's, S's, and B's.  Makes one wonder whether one is speaking
of LSB or another confusingly similar TLA ending in 'D'.
