LSB (Linux Standard Base) is a set of standards defined from the Linux Foundation
for linux distributions  with the latest version (LSB 5.0) released on 3rd
of June, 2015.
Python is also mentioned there but the information is horribly outdated . For example
here are the necessary modules that a python interpreter should include in an lsb compliant
system  and the minimum python version should be 2.4.2. Also the python3 interpreter
is never mentioned .
My question is, if there is any incentive to try and ask for modernization/amendment of the standards?
I really doubt that any linux distro at that point can be considered lsb compliant at least from the
python side of things.
