Mats Wichmann of the LSB, and I discussed Linux Assigned Names
And Numbers Authority matters at OLS a few weeks ago at some
length, and the matter was discussed in the LSB weekly
conference call on Wednesday with him and me leading the
discussion [the calls are open to persons willing to
participate and work -- ask off list if Fedora or Red Hat wish
details for calling in -- each has been absent from th process
for reasons unknown to me in recent years. -- Alan Cox
occastionally chimes in on the mailing list, always with
insightful comment, however]
and there is certainly an interest at the LSB in helping reach
inter-vendor coordination in this space.
Please feel free to CC me on any proposal for extension as it
is worked up.
Russ, it seems to me like there is some logic in having a centralized
"assignment" for static UID/GIDs, across distributions. Is this
something that LANANA would be interested in maintaining?
