Sounds like a good starting point.  I think it will help cover certain 
aspects of Linux.

Note that the LSB supposedly takes a brute force approach to building 
the toolchain, e.g., binutils, gcc and glibc.  Nothing wrong with that. 
 It just takes more time.

I'm not keen on using RPM as the package manager.  I think there are 
problems with it since different disbributions use RPM.  Openpkg might 
be a good alternative.  It's a modified RPM designed to use source packages.

I see no reason why we need to wait until the meeting if someone has 
questions about something they read.  We might be able to answer some of 
them ahead of time or be prepared to answer them at the meeting.
