[lsb-discuss] gtk libraries reference specification

As far as I can see we still have a problem with gtk libraries reference specification (bug #1925 [1]).

The LSB refers the "frozen" version of the gtk libraries documentation (glib-2.6.2, etc.), which were placed at the gtk.org site. But the documentation was disappeared from the gtk.org two months ago and it is still absent though the bug request was filed [2]. As a result we have broken links at the LSB Standard and at the LSB Navigator. It is an unacceptable situation for our users. 

If legal conditions allow I would suggest to publish a copy of gtk-2.6.2 documentation at the LF site and to change normative references accordingly. 

By the way if we uplift gtk to 2.8 for LSB 4.0 we will need to have one more "frozen" version of the gtk libraries documentation. If an upstream project has no infrastructure to publish documentation of old releases, requests to keep several "frozen" versions would be painful for them. It is an additional reason to keep "frozen" versions at the LF site.
