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.
