LSB Registry Application Instructions

Namespace management requests and actions are tracked in a public bugtracker. To apply for a new reservation, or request a change to an existing one over which you have control, please file a new bug at:, using Product: LANANA and Component: "/opt/ namespace assignment". Note you will need to create a bugzilla account here if you don't already have one.

When applying for a name in LSB namespaces for Init Scripts, Cron Scripts, Package Names or Provider Names, please perform the following steps for faster action on a submission:

  1. Check LANANA's web pages to see if the name you wish to reserve is still available.
  2. Check if there is a pending registration listed in the bugtracker.
  3. Include the following information in your request:


The team will try and respond to your request in a timely fashion. If nothing seems to be happening, a ping can go to the LSB mailing list, though comments/questions in the bug report will certainly be seen.
