“lsb” 4.0-0ubuntu8 source package in Ubuntu

Changelog

lsb (4.0-0ubuntu8) lucid; urgency=low

  * sendmail, debian/control, debian/rules, debian/lsb-invalid-mta.dirs:
    Added new binary package "lsb-invalid-mta" containing a fake
    /usr/sbin/sendmail so that the installation of LSB packages does not
    pull in an MTA any more, which once adds awkward configuration questions
    to the installation process and second adds an often unnneeded daemon to
    the system (LP: #141641).

  * debian/control: The LSB requires the printing environment already
    since version 3.2. Made lsb-printing required by the "lsb" package
    not only suggested (LP: #386128).

lsb: Linux Standard Base 4.0 support package

 The Linux Standard Base (http://www.linuxbase.org/) is a standard
 core system that third-party applications written for Linux can
 depend upon.
 .
 This package provides an implementation of all modules of version 4.0
 of the Linux Standard Base for Debian on the Intel x86, Intel ia64
 (Itanium), IBM S390, and PowerPC 32-bit architectures with the Linux
 kernel. Future revisions of the specification and this package may
 support the LSB on additional architectures and kernels.
 .
 The intent of this package is to provide a best current practice way
 of installing and running LSB packages on Debian GNU/Linux. Its
 presence does not imply that Debian fully complies
 with the Linux Standard Base, and should not be construed as a
 statement that Debian is LSB-compliant.

 logging and other purposes.

lsb-invalid-mta: Linux Standard Base sendmail dummy

 The Linux Standard Base (http://www.linuxbase.org/) is a standard
 core system that third-party applications written for Linux can
 depend upon.
 .
 This package contains nothing else than a fake /usr/sbin/sendmail
 command to fulfill the LSB's requirement of providing this command without
 requiring an MTA to get installed, which once introduces a daemon which
 can cause security problems and second, users get asked questions about
 how they want their MTA configured when in reality they simply wanted to
 install a deskltop application or a printer driver, but the dependency on
 LSB compliance pulls in an MTA with the installation.
 .
 The LSB requirement on /usr/sbin/sendmail comes from old times where Linux
 and Unix machines had all fixed IPs and did server tasks in data centers.
 Today's typical desktop Linux machines do not do local e-mail any more as
 users use external e-mail services.
 .
 The /usr/sbin/sendmail always exits with exit status -1 (255) and sends a
 warning message to stderr, so that if a program actually tries to send e-mail
 via the sendmail command the user gets note.

lsb-languages: Linux Standard Base 4.0 Runtime Languages package

 The Linux Standard Base (http://www.linuxbase.org/) is a standard
 core system that third-party applications written for Linux can

 Standard Base Languages specification for Debian on the Intel x86,
 Intel ia64 (Itanium), IBM S390, and PowerPC 32-bit architectures with
 the Linux kernel. Future revisions of the specification and this
 package may support the LSB on additional architectures and kernels.

 of installing and running LSB packages on Debian GNU/Linux. Its
 presence does not imply that Debian fully complies
 with the Linux Standard Base, and should not be construed as a

lsb-release: Linux Standard Base version reporting utility

 The Linux Standard Base (http://www.linuxbase.org/) is a standard
 core system that third-party applications written for Linux can

 .
 The lsb-release command is a simple tool to help identify the Linux
 distribution being used and its compliance with the Linux Standard Base.
 LSB conformance will not be reported unless the required metapackages are
 installed.
 .
 While it is intended for use by LSB packages, this command may also
 be useful for programmatically distinguishing between a pure Debian
 installation and derived distributions.

 core system that third-party applications written for Linux can
