F2F. Talked about the agenda, attendance. Darrin: can change rooms if
needed; the rooms are all in the same facility, but so far the numbers
look OK for the current room; up to 30.
LSB 3.2 release. Go over the specifications listed on
https://www.linux-foundation.org/en/ProjectPlan32. Kay: mount, umount?
Added to wiki page. Ted: what do ISVs need? Kay: still trying to
make that case. Ted: mount() interface is kernel-based, and changes;

mount() ABIs are very popular.
C++: status quo. Ted: is anyone assigned to make sure gcc 4.2 can be
persuaded to make LSB-compliant binaries? Jeff: no, but is on task

Graphics. X extension library controversy. Shape, X11 libs in DB.
Desktop: Freetype. Repair work needed on the headers for freetype. Qt

converted if possible. Will collect all future data to be easily
