Actually, the RHEL question is a significant one for LSB 4.1 as well.

If the Linux Foundation makes a commitment to arrange RHEL 5.x 
compliance with LSB 4.1, I would propose to target LSB 4.1 to Debian 
5.x, RHEL 5.x, SLES 11.x, Ubuntu 10.04.

Otherwise, ...
Looks like I am inclined to choose Debian 5.x, RHEL 5.x, SLES 11.x, 
Ubuntu 10.04 in any case.

Yes, we will be limited in uplift gtk, Qt, printing, etc., but
1. We are limited in resources anyway.
2. It would be better to release LSB 4.1 earlier (as well as LSB 5.0).
3. RHEL 5.x will be important for ISVs for long time.

What do you think?
