Quoting Tomas P.'s Mailing L. email@example.com:
for SOP (Script-Oriented Programming) only behind of sh shell. So the
I can’t see what’s so difficult about “apt-get install ruby”, or whatever
that is in the other distros.
I agree … furthermore, it just flat out ain’t gonna happen on some
like Gentoo. Gentoo is very much a customizable distro. If you’re a
you can bring the system up with a “stage3” install. Gentoo, being
however, does have something by default that most of the major distros
and DEB based – don’t have: gcc. So a minimal Gentoo box will have more
than a minimal Red Hat or Debian box.
In any event, LSB is purely an attempt to converge the two major
Linux, Red Hat/RPM and Debian/DEB, into something that people from
of the fence can deal with. “Also-rans” like Gentoo and Ruby are not
this by the intention of the committee. Ruby can do itself a big favor,
Rails can do itself an even bigger favor, by embracing the standard,
than whining about being excluded.
