you could comment on
https://lsbbugs.linuxfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=4157 if there's
something you're like to add - or at least add yourself to the Cc list.
I also opened 4156 for the slightly botched version handling you pointed

it has been very quiet. I can't speak to plans; there have been hints of
some things happening for a while but I haven't heard anything concrete.
 I'm personally too busy with work to contribute much.
