deb lsb-4.0 \

The LSB is to prevent linux from getting forked-up!

Nevertheless, not all distros use RPM, nor is it likely to be the case in the near future.  It therefore makes sense to distribute Debian and Slackware packages in addition to RPMs even if LSB dictates otherwise.

This was why I didn't understand what LSB had to do with having packages for different distros (even OS like *BSD or MacOS).
