LSB upstream IS active, only that they release new versions only every
1-2 years. The problem of LSB requiring such old libraries is that LSB
defines a set of characteristics which all currently supported
enterprise level Linux distributions have in common, so that commercial
software vendors can release binary packages which work on all important
distros. Due to low release frequencies and long support periods of
enterprise distros the LSB always requires library versions much older
than the versions shipping in current non-LTS Ubuntu.
