I notice someone created an LSB Futures tracker item
for Apple's Rendezvous.
Besides the fact that they now call the technology
Bonjour, I think the problem statement is wrong, it
shouldn't be "add Rendezvous to the LSB because
somebody asked for it", I think it should be to add
automated network service discovery similar to how
it's provided by Bonjour. This is being worked on
by a few projects, and I notice Avahi is starting to
appear in a few distributions - the avahi.org page
Avahi is currently part of the following distributions:
* Debian (unstable & testing)
* Fedora Core
* Mandriva (cooker)
* FreeBSD Ports
So should this tracker be updated, or just thrown
away and a new one started?
Any comments on the general topic?
