In the end of the day we as an open source community need to start 
moving away from discussion more into form of dialog to be able to 
standardize and solving many of the problem we are faced with and one 
thing I have noticed people seem to be move unconsciously from 
discussion into dialog's in a relaxed environment so if it was up to me 
( which it is not ) I would design the role of the "LSB people" to be 
more of the responsible party getting the right people together which is 
affected upstream of the relevant section of the standard being created 
in a relaxed environment ( pub, open bbq or something ) and get the 
discussion flowing while consulting/listening/noting down/formulate the 
standard based on what comes out from that discussion as opposed to 
bring to the table either existing outdated standard needing improvement 
or a proposal for a complete new one.
