As I’m shoveling my way through the LSB docs, I ventured a little further into the LFS documentation for a break. It looks like the LSB-compliance effort I was hoping for is indeed going to be mostly completed by finishing a BLFS build, so, I got lucky — since the plan was to do LFS to get my hands dirty, then a BLFS to get tough, and then build entirely from scratch for the 3rd iteration using the processes and knowledge I develop from the first two iterations.
This is a lucky break, because, LSB is a massive standard specification and just the common core specification of the standard is over a thousand pages — highlighting the reason Debian made their break and why many major distros just never tried to get their distro certified.
Interesting stuff. No other updates.
