Posted Agenda:
    - Status of stable updates.
    - LSB 5.0: More glibc updates, especially aio.

New business:

Meeting opens at 11:00 with:

Daylight Saving time is causing some conflicts, but they may 
pass as the various jurisdictions move to DST globally. Note 
the one conflict is scheduled using UTC, so won't help that 
one. Pending a discussion on the mailing list, no change in 
time for the call, as this may solve itself in a couple weeks

re-entrant crypt functions (crypt_r, encrypt_r, setkey_r) are 
ready to add to LSB

async I/O:  in POSIX 2008, this option group has moved to 
Base, which seems to be enough of a signal to turn on in LSB. 
Linux manpages don't have any particular "don't use this, it's 
horribly broken" disclaimers.  However, Linux AIO is normally 
a different implementation using libaio.  There was once an 
effort to implement one using the other, but haven't heard 
anything about that.  libaio is at an 0.3 level, there hasn't 
really been any call to add that to LSB yet. So mostly we 
think POSIX aio could go in, people don't have to use it, but 
it makes use a more complete implementation of POSIX, and 
track glibc a little closer.

patchsets for adding crypt_r, POSIX aio already exist in the 
relevant bugs.

Some discussion of ways for people to join the LSB meeting 
without being there in person.  Jeff and Russ will both 
investigate further various technologies.  Editorial remark: 
the state of open source conferencing software (that is, with 
voice and maybe video) isn't that great. All efforts seem to 
have some limitation.
