Hi Darren,

I have a few questions.

The LSB (and Markus Rex) would like us to run these scripts to get the
symbol data to add to the LSB database.  It seems to me that it would be
easier (and quicker) to add the scripts to the openSUSE build system.
Is it interesting for all kind of packages or just special ones?

I think that the LSB is looking for a broad application mix (See Alexey's reply). Basically the LSB wants to know what interfaces are being used by applications being built today.

What is happening with the generated data later? Would you like to

The data is put into the LSB Infrastructure Database and can be used by the LSB to determine what interfaces are the most important.

To get and idea, check out;

see the LSB database integrated in the buildserver later on or are these kind of data just for download and import into the other system?

I guess they are primarily put into the LSB database on their website and use it for decision making purposes as it relates to future interfaces in the LSB standard, but the data can prove useful for an application developer. The developer gets information like if the interfaces they are using are in the LSB or not. In the end, just symbol data for the application.

How are different architectures handled?

Currently the have separate data for IA32 and x86-64. They do want to add all the supported LSB architectures, but they don't have all that data at this point. This is probably a question for Alexey at ISP RAS, but I am pretty sure they want all architectures in the future.



I will work with Alexey to see if we can get the LSB scripts into the OBS as Adrian instructed. I am currently attending the SUSE Labs conference, so I won't get started on that for a week or so.

Thanks for your time,
