Meeting opens at 11:00 with:

Jeff L mentions the LLVM 'crange' python tool to which Russ 
referred him over the week [1]

Buildbot presentation by Jeff L (somewhere?) using the LSB 
buildbot.  Russ notes the s390 / s390x weekly rebuilds seem 
not to have fired

appchecker data is kept as compressed files on 
ftp.linuxbase.org, where it's downloaded when appchecker is 
built (it is quite large, and a set is needed for each 
architecture - but only "this" architecture's set is needed 
when building the pkg, so it's not all stored in the vcs 
tree).  Data has been regenned and uploaded for x86 and 
x86-64. appchecker version was bumped to indicate something 
changed, but for the other 5 arches, it still has the prior 
(older) data. next build after data is uploaded (Jeff L. to 
try to get to this) will pick up, doesn't seem necessary to 
bump versions again. We'll go through this again when/if more 
distro scans are added.

Jeff L and Jeff J discuss LSB RPM uplift; Russ points out 
and particularly
	lsbpkgchk.1  makefile  pkgchk.c
as a non-alien implementation, and checker of LSB format 
(forked from rpm-3 series) RPMs

Call ends at local Noon
