IDG News Service - Free Standards Group Inc., a nonprofit group that promotes standards for open-source software, last week said it has opened a lab in Beijing to certify that Linux distributions and applications developed in China meet the Linux Standard Base (LSB) standards.
The group said that it and the China Electronics Standardization Institute will jointly run the Beijing lab.
The LSB, which was recently approved as a standard by the International Standards Organization and the International Electrotechnical Commission, was developed to prevent Linux from fragmenting, according to the statement. The LSB is comprised of application programming interfaces, libraries and interoperability standards, as well as test suites and development environments, it said.
Developers working on Linux distributions and applications for China can apply for certification by the Beijing lab.
