In a discussion about user naming on the openSUSE factory list [1][2], 
Greg KH pointed out that there may be potential overlap with 
freedesktop.org and our chosen direction after LSB 5.0.

I can see areas where this potential exists, but I am not certain if 
there is reason for concern.

 From my point of view our focus on testing, ISV and potentially admin 
issues looks at the world form a different angle. That's not to say that 
there will not be areas where close collaboration with freedesktop.org 
may be a good thing but I still think there is sufficient distinction.

Just wanted to share this on this list to expand the circle of awareness.


Not certain if Greg is subscribed here, thus adding him to the mail for 
full disclosure ;)
