Of course I did not mean to tell you how to use your time! Sorry.

Sure, but our release schedule is not sane, it needs *a lot* of
work. And there are too many RC bugs.

No. But LSB compliance does not include init.d scripts, and SELinux
support is also only a goal, not a blocker.

Well, then I suggest you start by doing the work and filing bugs
with patches. When you reach a point where you can say "if all these
bugs were merged, we would have LSB compliance", then I suppose we
can see what to do from there and proceed with the NMUs.

Does this sound fair?
