LSB 3.1 is now out the door. LSB 3.2 will be available in 12 months. The 
plan for LSB 4.0 is 22 months (2Q08).

the content of Linux Standard Base in 3.2 and 4.0 on June 1 & 2 in Boston.

during the OSDL Printing Summit regarding the problems of installation and 
recommended solutions. Ira will put together an outline that we can talk 
about and put into slides during our next meeting in 2 weeks. Then we can 
post the slides to the desktop_printing mailing list to solicit comments.

LSB 4.0 should focus on including more open printing standards by using

Ira may be able to attend the LSB planning meeting. If not we may have to 
ask Till or Waldo to present the slides if either of them are planning to
