LSB Package Name Registry

The LSB Package Name (assigned by LANANA) will be used to name your LSB-compliant RPM package for your Linux application.

Hierarchical Namespace Alternatives: Instead of applying for an LSB Package Name, it is also possible to use "lsb-" and your fully qualified Internet domain name (FQDN in lower case) or your LSB Provider Name to prefix your package name as described in the Software Installation chapter of the LSB Core specification.

Restrictions: All LSB package names assigned by LANANA will begin with the prefix "lsb-" and must not contain any other hyphens.

Note: It is legal to have more than one hyphen in your package name, but the portion between the first and second hyphen must be an LSB provider name or your FQDN. Refer to the Package Naming section in the Software Installation chapter of the LSB spec for complete details.

References: See the Software Installation chapter of the LSB specification.

To obtain new LSB Package Name assignments, first read these instructions and then submit your completed request (do not use HTML email format) to the current LSB registrar:
