"The Free Standards Group is pleased to announce the 1.0-beta release of the Linux Development Platform Specification (LDPS). After a two week public review of LDPS 1.0-beta, we will release LDPS 1.0. The LDPS is located at:
The LDPS is designed so that programs developed on a conforming platform are expected to be portable to all generally available Linux distributions as of July 22, 2000. We recommend that all independent software developers create binary versions of their applications using distributions conforming to the LDPS."
"A companion committee (the Linux Standard Base) under the Free Standards Group is developing a complete standard for cross-distribution development of applications that will supersede this interim specification. If the superseding specification is not available by December 31, 2000, the LDPS will be updated by that date."
