[lsb-discuss] lsb version and the specdb ModCmd and ModLibtables

Tracy,

Indeed, current specdb doesn't contain information about LSB version where
particular artifacts were added/removed or became deprecated (as for
interfaces, you can only know when it was withdrawn from the specification).
There is a request in bugzilla
(http://bugs.linuxbase.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1450) for a new table containing
history for interfaces, commands and libraries.

We [ISP RAS] are working now under a contract with FSG on the specdb schema
upgrade and the next version of specdb will be available soon. The coming
release is mostly a 'cleanup' release, where we removed some inconsistencies
in specdb and made its structure more uniform. We have also added
'withdrawnin' field in Library, Command, Constant and Header tables similar
to Interfaces.

As for the other history information you requested, we are going to add the
appropriate fields in a later release (mid-end Nov) of specdb (maybe not
exact the fields you requested; it's better to place such information
directly in Module/Command/Library tables, as Mats mentioned). We will
refine the data to contain valid information in those fields as well.

Vladimir Rubanov
