Meeting opens at 11:00 with:

Discussion of P1 critical path for release of LSB 5, and 
differing views between Bugzilla and Launchpad 

Complete release master bug: 3164 and dependecies / blockers


Current: bit.ly/1lTfG4o 

which matches (should)

Missing interface definitions (bug 3754) was a big topic of 

Missing interface definitions: some generated from 
specdb-aux-scripts/check_consistency.sh LSB Navigator can also 
generate some of this data, selecting admin mode and going to 
Workgroup Services ("Included interfaces without 
documentation") Another source is in lsbspec itself: as spec 
pieces are built, interface references are added. If not 
found, an sgml comment is emitted, so searching for these is 
helpful - they will look like: 
Base/generic/utillib/libz.sgml:<!-- MISSING DEFINITION FOR 
inflateCopy --> Note these will all be duplicated, as each 
library-related fragment is then ' built into a larger chunk, 
so the example missing inflateCopy will also appear in 

lsbspec: are png15 interfaces documented?  png15 ones matching 
png12 were duplicated into own directory. References: 
lsbspec/Graphics/generic/libpng and 
lsbspec/Graphics/generic/libpng15. mats notes it will be 
intesting to check whether the libpng15 interfaces have 
Interface.Idocumented set to true, if not that could be 
inflating the count. Update: they're not marked documented.

=== (topic proposed at beginning, but we didn't really get to 
it) A note from mats on building the packaging spec: source is 
separated into a submodule directory Packaging in the lsbspec 
branch, and buildable in the books branch in the Packaging* 
subdirectories.  The design in general is submodules are 
buildable standalone in books, these are not expected to be 
released as such as LSB branded specifications, so this is a 
good model for building "Linux Package Specification" without 
involving the rest of the LSB stuff.  Materials in 
lsbspec/generic/intro are used only for the 0submodule) book.  
intro.m4 is thus the place that contains the verbiage "Linux 
Package Specification" as opposed to implying it's LSB
