LSB Provider Name Registry

The LSB Provider Name (assigned by LANANA) can be used in the hierarchical namespaces for init.d, cron.d and package naming when creating an LSB compliant distribution or application.

Alternatives: Instead of applying for an LSB Provider Name, it is also possible to use your fully qualified Internet domain name (FQDN in lower case) to prefix your package and script names as described in the Software Installation and System Initialization chapters of the LSB Core specification.

Restrictions: The LSB provider name assigned by LANANA must only consist of the ASCII characters [a-z0-9].

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