the LSB Futures tracker is no longer in use, except for
historical information.  I think some sort of a replacement
is in the works.

on June 2006.

As you've noticed, there are out of date documents on
the website.  The most current information on what we're
working on, unfortunately with quite a short-term horizon:


There's not really anything happening currently in
the manageability area.  At the moment the focus is really
on making the LSB easier for application developers to
use.  If people wanted to step up and build a work
group to focus on the manageability area, that would
be fine.   I don't personally feel like "manageability"
as a generic area is quite ready for LSB, but from the
specific areas you've pulled out of the old Futures
tracker, there are several that might be (and that is
why they went onto that list in the first place).
