Porting to the Linux Standard Base

IBM developerWorks offers a tutorial (free registration required) on "Porting to the Linux Standard Base". Excerpt from the introduction:

"Because Linux® is an open operating system, you can configure and assemble it to suit specialized purposes. However, while variety and choice are beneficial for users, heterogeneity can vex software developers who must build and support packages on a multitude of similar but subtly different platforms. Fortunately, if an application conforms to the Linux Standard Base (LSB), and a flavor of Linux is LSB compliant, the application is guaranteed to run. Discover the LSB, and learn how to port your code to the standard."

Adhering to standards -- I'm all about that, although I've been called names before for showing enthusiasm for Python project layout standardization...Anyway, I'm glad to see the Linux community pushing the LSB, since this will benefit both distribution creators and application writers.
